A Panorama of Landscape Pictures at LUMAS
Landscape art is all about taking a wide view. It represents a desire to capture the world’s naturally occurring grandeur. We have an extensive collection of art by world-renowned artists and up-and-coming talents carving out a name for themselves. It’s an expertly curated portfolio of landscapes ready and waiting to make an appearance on your wall at home!
A Brief History of Landscape Art
The landscape has long figured into art around the world. Landscapes have been both imagined or based on real scenes, with the tradition dating back over 1000 years. The early Chinese landscapes were simple black ink wash paintings, predominantly of mountains. Ancient Romans used beautiful nature pictures to decorate the rooms of important buildings.
In Europe, landscape art re-emerged in the late medieval period, but it wasn’t until the Renaissance that it once again became a central focus with its heavily idealized, pastoral images of the Mediterranean. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, landscapes continued to be romanticized, an idea that eventually spread to the United States. Now one of the most developed themes in art, landscape pictures speak to us on a personal, cultural, and often universal level.
Photography has brought a new aesthetic to landscape art. When it comes to landscape images in photography, the emphasis is on coherent composition. Although the medium is essentially literal, the use of various photo techniques such as lighting, focus, and exposure can give landscape photography an interpretive quality. It can include references to human activity, such as urban sprawls and industrial infrastructure, or it can observe nature in its unaffected state, with the focus primarily on dramatic shapes, weather, and animals.
Landscape images reflect the diversity of nature. They range from dramatic mountain peaks and violent storms to tranquil, sometimes mystical scenes that play with light. With over 3,000 artworks in our portfolio, LUMAS is the ideal place to explore landscape art. We work with established and emerging photographers from around the world. In our expertly curated galleries, you can explore landscape art through the ages in our unsigned Open Editions. Alternatively, our Limited Editions are hand-signed and come complete with a certificate of authenticity.
Quality Landscape Pictures: the LUMAS Collection
At LUMAS, quality is our top priority. We provide a professional, affordable alternative to museum gift shops and run-of-the-mill posters. Thanks to our partnership with WhiteWall, all of our landscape art is produced to the highest standards possible using the most modern processes.
We believe you should be able to experience owning art without compromising on quality. For our photos, we pair tradition with the latest photo developing technology to produce outstanding landscape pictures that last for generations.
Professional Framing and Mounting for Landscape Images
Finally, we consult with the artists and craftsmen every step of the way to find the perfect frame. That way, you can get even more enjoyment out of owning a piece of art. All of our frames are produced by experts in our frame workshop and are made to measure. Available in colored wood or matte aluminum, WhiteWall frames are built to last. For a more dramatic, highly contemporary look, we also provide professional mounting. Using a lightweight aluminum composite panel for backing, the landscape image is mounted beneath a protective layer of acrylic glass or laminated with a protective foil. If you have large, empty spaces on your walls, why not showcase some idyllic scenery there!
