Early in the nineteenth century, it was recognized that the status of landscape painting was changing. This change happened quite quickly. The fabulous successes of Turner took place only thirty years after the failure of Wilson; and in the course of the century landscapes which at least purported to be close imitations of nature, came to hold a more secure place in popular affection than any other form of art. A peaceful scene, with water in the foreground reflecting a luminous sky and set off by dark trees, was something which everyone agreed was beautiful, just as, in previous ages, they had agreed about a naked athlete or a saint with hands crossed on her bosom. As for an extensive view: a great change has taken place since Petrarch's ascent of Mount Ventoux, and, with the exception of love, there is perhaps nothing else by which people of all kinds are more united than by their pleasure in a good view.

It is generally true that all changes or expansions of popular taste have their origins in the vision of some great artist or group of artists, which sometimes rapidly, sometimes gradually, and always unconsciously, is accepted by the uninterested man. The popular appreciation of landscape arose from complex causes and was accompanied by the successful endeavors of many second-rate painters. Purely as popular imagery the paintings of Calcott, Collins, Pickersgill, and other mediocrities, remain long as important as those of Constable. Yet in the end, it is the genius of Constable, which first discovered and still justifies the art of unquestioning naturalism.

Unfortunately, I do not have a clear photo of this rather large painting. However, I added it to the exhibition due to its unique combinatory features. The 1993 year, Oil x Canvas, St. Petersburg, signed as Y. Gribanovsky
