This title presents an informative and thoroughly illustrated introduction to the tradition of French landscape painting. Filled with glorious full-colour illustrations, "Capturing Nature's Beauty" highlights the key moments of the French landscape tradition from its emergence in the 1600s to its pre-eminence in the 1800s. Drawing on a wide selection of works from the J. Paul Getty Museum's extensive collection - including those of Francois Boucher, Vincent van Gogh, Claude Lorrain, Jean-Baptiste Oudry, Theodore Rousseau, and Georges Seurat - it examines the variety of techniques, functions, and styles used throughout the period. This delightful volume also provides a brief, yet informative general introduction to landscape painting making it both a handsome reference and a welcome gift.
