I’ve recently joined a terrific art blogging group,The Art of the Landscape, a project started by Katherine Tyrrell to learn more about landscape art. A timeline of landscape art has been started as we’re looking at how some movements or schools have influenced others.

To help keep these straight in my own mind, I have hi-lighted examples of landscape painting in “History of Design” a cross-cultural time-line of archaeology and the history of art, architecture, design and invention that I started putting together a couple of years ago. This ten-page outline runs from the earliest rock art through to the present day. Landscape painting developments are hi-lighted in colour, get passing mention on pages 4, 5 and 6, but only feature prominently on pages 7, 8 (shown on the left) and 9.
