Reviews


"A splendid text ... with images both celebrated and startling, he shows landscape as a contruction, a theatre in which humans act and enjoy seeing themselves act."--Professor Richard Thomson, Edinburgh University
"A very accomplished surveyof a notoriously complex and elusive subject ... nothing--not even words like 'environment' and 'art' is left unquestioned."--Andrew Wilton, Keeper and Senior Research Fellow, Tate Gallery
"Highly intelligent ... it insists that hte making of landscape is inseperable from the history of the moment of its production, but also recognizes the intense personal experiences that motivate it."--Professor John House, Courtauld Institute of Art
