Flemish and Dutch artists, pioneers in the landscape genre

Rubens, Landscape with the Château Steen, 1636.

Dutch art saw landscapes as the medium that expressed pride in their country in the 17th century. Peter Paul Rubens, the most eminent representative of Flemish art, among a vast number of artists excelled in landscape as well as in portraiture, religious, mythological and allegorical subjects. Gillis van Coninxloo worked in a Mannerist style. Pieter van Laar developed his own style of landscape. Esaias van de Velde, Hercules Seghers, Jan van Goyen and Salomon van Ruysdael also were among the pioneers. Aelbert Cuyp was one of the most famous Dutch landscape painters of the Dutch Golden Age. Jacob van Ruisdael (or Ruysdael) was the greatest of all Dutch Golden Age landscape painters; Van Ruisdael excelled in the painting of cloudscapes.
