While landscape generally suggests the world of nature, cityscapes have long been a part of the landscape tradition. See a few by the Impressionists in our New European Galleries.

John Tuoktman «Cottage in winter» (1891)
Cottage disappears behind thin veil of snow. Naked trees inlaid with frost. Pink shadows on the snow. It is either evening or sunless morning. Uncertain shades. Translucent twigs. Cold. Cold outside.
Джон Туоктмен «Загородный дом зимой» (1891)
Коттедж исчезает за тонкой вуалью снега. Обнаженные деревья украшены морозом. Розовые тени на снегу. Сейчас либо вечер, либо пасмурное утро. Нечеткие тени. Прозрачные ветви. Холод. Холод повсюду.
Monet’s water lilies at the Orangerie Museum. The pictures don’t do it justice in the slightest. It’s a long oval room; two very long curved panels and two shorter ones. My favorite is the one with the orange and yellows in it.

As one of the best-known members of the New Hope school of Impressionists in Pennsylvania, Daniel Garber studied the effects of light, both in overcast and sunny landscapes, to create his lyrical compositions. This painting depicts a view across the canal to the town of New Hope, which is bathed in sunlight.

Sometimes with Claude Monet, I get Hamlet's vibes, mostly of Ophelia with the drowning pond. It's also such a relaxing painters... I do live the impressionists movements, it's calm yet it express many things...
