Wetland. Shaping Environments in Netherlandish Art


What aspects of their environment do artists decide to depict? Are they critical of the way in which others treat the environments that surround them? This NKJ volume finds an answer to these questions by focusing on the Dutch environment between the fifteenth century and now, a wetland that humans constantly tried to shape and reshape according to their needs. Gathering essays by scholars of early modern and modern and contemporary art, Wetland discovers the past of future landscapes in art.
