Landscape painting has always been an expression of the love of nature and the attempt to bring the beauty of the world into the home of four walls. But also this art direction was always subject to the zeitgeist.
Paintings with landscapes as their own subjects came relatively late, namely in the 17th century in fashion. Previously, the landscape on paintings had always been subordinated to the main motive, mostly heroes of ancient mythologies. Especially in the Netherlands, landscape painting became a unique artistic genre with experts for the different landscape types.
The heyday of landscape painting with a high degree of iconicity was above all romanticism and naturalism. Both depicted mostly constructed landscapes as realistic as possible. Romanticism places the longing for nature and the return to it at the center of the often dreamily seeming paintings. While Romanticism often carries religious and nationalist traits, bearing in mind that nineteenth-century nationalism was another, far more progressive, than that of later centuries, naturalism's focus is on nature itself, similar to that of realism only for social criticism as a subject of the picture. In this sense, naturalism and realism have a certain intersection that makes it difficult to strictly separate the two styles.

Exactly opposite to the landscape painting of the romance and the naturalism is that of the impressionism. The Impressionists always depict real places and scenarios, but did not attach much importance to a style of painting with a high degree of iconicity. Rather, they put the play of light and colors in the focus of their work.
