I'll never understand why humans stopped doing these paintings. Just because of photography? So what, that you can take a picture literally looking like >>8038642? It doesn't convey anything remotely close to a painting as a photograph. You captured a reality, a second of time. Whereas a painting captures something deeper, an expression, a manifest of reality through lens of our species. The subtle imperfection, the suble artistry, that's what makes realistic art superior over photography. I'm greatly furious, that humans simply gave up on landscape painting just because photography became available for masses. What a disaster, what a catastrophy! What a great tragedy of our time, as we're bombarded with pointless, fruitless horror of modern art which is nothing but random strokes of brush or abstract nonsense where you can't make any details should you try for 100 years. The romance is lost, the precision raped into dehuminazed fetish to undercurrent the expression of depth and character. In chase for the next great thing we leave behind the body of work of mastery, not for the sake of technological progress, but as a spitting insult which dares to slow us down. There's no honesty, no majesty, no empathy. We machine towards future like brainless destructors while being all mighty and so greatly intolerable to anything old as if the new is always the right answer. And it never is alone, as the burden of our species lies in balance, and always will.

Sadly this condition will only get worse as AI art inevitably progresses more to mock genuine art with meaning and intention behind it, just to generate soulless copies that can be "made" by any talentless person even without a slight of endeavor or hardship, removing what made the art what it is in the first place, thus making it lose it's essence.

Representational landscape paintings are still being made. I like April Gornik's work a lot.

However most contemporary and popular/famous landscapes are less representational or realistic and more abstract and Impressionistic.

Seriously though go to any small gallery and you'll find plenty of representational landscapes usually local.

All art follows trends.

Landscape paintings are really unique and they give different vibes or perspectives on not only the style but just the overall feel. I love photography and especially great landscape and environment photography. But for me its like landscapes paintings give off a sort of "soft" comfort you really can't capture with a camera.

anonchan where do you find so many landscape paintings?
>>
>>8044268
From the file names a lot of these are coming off the wiki site:

As he said. Just type in an artist on wikipedia and go to the 'commons' page. You'll be impressed how many new cool paintings you can find there. When I have the time, I go down rabbit holes, clicking on any random old artists that show up and it's worth it every time. Wikimedia Commons is a Goldmine.

What's your opinion on Baumgartner, anon?
>>
>>8046912
It's a different painting. Same subject, but there are several small differences. Also not a filter, but probably reflections on the glass. I have the one you've posted as well.
>>
>>
>>8046928
I don't think it's a different painting, actually. Just a really bad filter of some sorts and it's cropped as well. The small details, angles and positions are way too same and in exact same places for it to be a different painting, zoom in to check it out.
>>
>>8046965
The biggest difference is the missing lightning bolt. I don't think it's a digital filter, just odd reflections when it was photographed.
>>
>>8046972
If you zoom on the top of the lighthouse here >>8042413 you can see it's a deformed filter, so it's just heavily altered original painting.
>>
>>8046974
Yeah, you're right. I think I got it from /hr/, so someone probably altered and uploaded it. Thanks.
Another lighthouse painting by Melbye.
