A Brief History of Art Outdoors

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.
