Product Description:
Landscape as Backdrop Video (VHS/DVD). According to some, the concept of landscape originated with the painters of northern Europe and their use of light-a light that models objects and creates successive planes that draw the eye into the distance. This program traces the evolution of the landscape in art, from its function as a stylized setting to its employment as a realistic part of a scene, and the technical challenges of depicting a landscape's constituent parts. Paintings, film clips, and photographs show how visual devices such as gardens and estrades are used to separate foreground and background and how the artistic tension is resolved between landscapes and the humans that often inhabit them.
