Artists have long been fascinated and inspired by landscape, but there are many great examples of them using the great outdoors not just as a subject matter, but the place in which to display their creations. Ahead of this year’s Beyond Limits exhibition at Chatsworth House, we explore some of the most remarkable outdoor art on the international stage; charting the beginning of outdoor museums in 1960s, to Earthworks, public commissions and site-specific installations that push the boundaries of human imagination. Click ahead to look back over the world’s finest examples. LAUNCH SLIDESHOW
NEW YORK - The Wyeth family established itself as a dynasty in the field of American Art. Beginning with the famed illustrator Newell Convers Wyeth, painterly talent descended through the Wyeth family, first to N.C.’s son Andrew, and later, to Andrew’s son Jamie. Though each developed his own distinct stylistic approach, one thing they certainly shared is the importance of portraiture in their work. From N.C.’s command of figuration and expression, to Andrew’s keen attention to personal detail, and finally, Jamie’s celebrated depictions of both public figures and ordinary Americans, each generation created a body of portraiture that records his own uniquely American voice.
