Description: In My Room: Artists Paint the Interior 1950-Now

Landscape painting was first seen in the Minoan frescoes of Crete around 1500 B.C. and was generally used as decoration, adding views of the Mediterranean landscape to interiors where there were none. The “landscape” eventually became a common genre in western painting, understood as a window onto the world thanks to artist and theorist Leon Battista Alberti and his ideas about the picture plane known as ‘Alberti’s Window’. After the Industrial Revolution, however, modern art erupted with the landscape’s inversion: the interior. Notably, modern artists began depicting windows into other rooms instead of painting views of the outside world.
