Artists who pioneered open-air landscape painting between 1780 and 1840 came to Italy from all over Europe to respond directly to the beauty of landscape for the first time. With a rich selection of representative paintings from these outdoor artists, this beautiful book traces the work of the earliest members of the school, Pierre-Henri de Valenciennes and Thomas Jones, to the culminating paintings of Corot.
