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.
>>
>>8040968
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.

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.

In a way it feels that within popular western culture that art like this is cemented as a historical artifact. You go to a museum or echoey art gallery to view things like this and it disconnects people from the idea of it being an artform you can and should currently pursue.

Art in itself is also an after thought in education and not considered a useful skill as we live in an increasingly digital age, so the appreciation of what goes into masterpieces like this and the reward of their creation and appreciation for them in a modern era is increasingly gone.

Cause it's like "who cares, there's websites full of this stuff". It's a shame and I'm really not sure if there's a way to walk any of that back or what way we can reignite a broad public consciousness towards appreciating the noble human pursuit of scratching a stick into the dirt in tribute to the beauty of this world we find ourselves in.

Hardship doesn't make something good or bad. A noob can produce absolute shit with an inhuman amount of effort and a genius could produce a masterpiece with minimal effort and hardship. You're just scared you're not good enough to compete with AI.

artist here.
please read:

for a guy who claims to have such strong feelings for art, how could you not know that?

VISIT SOME COMMERCIAL ART GALLERIES

pretty insulting to practicing artists that you lounge in front of your computer screen dycrying the death of art, but you've never been to see any art by living artists.
Go into ANY art gallery (these are not "museums" you understand, but places that show and sell art by living artists; every city has many, evena small town will have something).

Tell them what you want to see, and they'll be able to tell you which galleries to govisit.

There's no sales pressure or anything like that, just galleries showing art of all kinds -- including stuff you oddly believed was no longer made.

I'm noticing that the majority of posts in this thread are just taken from Wikipedia. You may find this hard to understand but most painters don't post high quality scans of their work online.

Most of the time paintings are posted online (outside of classics on wiki) they are posted by the gallery and it's from the perspective of the viewer, it's not cropped for a fucking pape. This is because their trying to sell the painting, go figure.

All you are doing is outing yourself as someone who has never been to an actual art gallery.
>>
>>8067335
Listen dude, I want to see art and I want to see the modern art as well. The only way how to make it more popular is that people start randomly posting it in random threads like this one. Until it happens, the modern ones might as well not exist at all.
I don't care about some mysterious galleries or the fact modern artists are lazy as fuck to scan their work for the most important medium out there (the internet). Instead of excuses, start making new art popular.

>>8067428
> I want to see art and I want to see the modern art as well.

>The only way how to make it more popular is that people start randomly posting it in random threads like this one.
The obvious popularity of wg aside, it seems you have little understanding of how artists generate buzz around their work
>I don't care about some mysterious galleries
There is no mystery here, just a reluctance on your part to venture beyond your cave.
>modern artists are lazy as fuck to scan their work
Why sell prints or original paintings at galleries when high-resolution scans could be posted for people to make their own prints?
>Instead of excuses, start making new art popular.
There are no excuses from me, but your lack of knowledge about how painters profit from their work is astonishing.

If you genuinely want to support painters whose work you appreciate, the best way to do so is not by sharing their work on this board, but by purchasing prints or originals directly from the artists or from galleries that exhibit their work.
>>
>>8067437
You don't follow my point. I don't want to go to galleries and museum. I want to sit on my ass and enjoy your new art. I want it to become popular as the old masters art. Gimme that. Show me that. Work on that. Til then, I will keep talking about it is not seen and basically how it doesn't exist and how it sucks, because nobody even bothers to scan it down.
>>
>>8067448
>I don't want to go to galleries and museum. I want to sit on my ass and enjoy your new art.
If you prefer a less immersive experience by viewing a 4-foot painting on your monitor, that's your choice. You can start following art pages on Twitter and Instagram or visit gallery websites. Unsurprisingly, this board doesn't attract many genuine art enthusiasts.
>I want it to become popular as the old masters art. Gimme that. Show me that. Work on that.
Aww poor baby wants his art now. Maybe try stable diffusion I'm positive that a lack of emotional representation in a landscape will matter to you.
>because nobody even bothers to scan it down.
