The landscape picture was, and still is a major theme in art history. Often rich with symbolism, this genre of painting explores the wonders of the world, a sense of escapism with romanticised scenic views. For many of the Grand Tourists, these glimpses of painted landscapes would serve to capture foreign lands that could be brought back and placed on their living room walls as evidence of their travels. Explore our extensive and remarkable collection of the tradition of landscape painting. Our collection holds the works of the world-famous Pietro Della Valle as well as Grand Tour Italiante landscape artist Richter to Guiseppe Giardiello.
