Art in Context (6-part series):
The Rise of Modernism in Europe: Realist Shifts in the 19th Century
Part 4: Naturalist Shifts in the Country: Evolution of Landscape in France and America
As urbanization exploded, the 19th century witnessed a great movement from country to city. Landscape painting enjoyed a resurgence and the Barbizon School painted landscapes which were both nostalgic and fresh. In the US, landscape painting was tied to the political desire for westward expansion and the spiritual belief that the country represented a New Jerusalem.
