The story is told from its beginnings in Roman mural decoration, through the Renaissance transformation of landscape into an ambitious vehicle for feelings and ideas, to the impressionist revolution and beyond. The continuing relevance of art to how we see the world, and our place in it, is demonstrated through a practical discussion of optics of real and painted landscape, illustrated with works from the National Gallery, London.
