The direct appreciation of nature and its usage as a specific subject for art, is a relatively recent notion. Before the seventeenth century landscape was usualy merely a background to portraits or history painting (certainly this is mostly true of the western world).

During the seventeenth-century many painters began to depict the landscapes of classical Greece and Rome, this was called classical landscape. The French Academy placed lanscapes as fourth (of five) in its hierarchy of genres.

Landscape painting became increasingly popular through the eighteenth century, but it was the nineteenth century, that saw an espousal of naturalistic landscapes. It is surmised that this was a reaction to industrialisation and urbanisation, and the belief that nature shows God’s work more clearly.

In Britain Constable and Turner were in the vanguard of this movement, it was later taken on by French Impressionists. The genre soon emcompassed industrial and urban landscapes.
