Abstract: This thesis in research/creation will develop in the research portion, how painting has played a major role in the evolution and formation of the concept of landscape in Western civilization, from the Renaissance to the 20th century. It will explain how landscape painting has contributed to our present fascination in the ‘picturesque’ landscape, and its representation. The evolution and transformation of the word ‘landscape’, which emerged simultaneously in several European languages during the Renaissance will be summarized. The various theories on the concept of landscape will be presented, and the concepts of ‘nature’ and ‘environment’ will be developed in relation to the landscape. The last part is dedicated to the body of work linked to this thesis. It expresses how the visual arts may now, as during the Renaissance and several centuries after, play a role in the reevaluation and re-creation of our relationship to nature, landscape and the environment.
