Galerie Ora-Ora is proud to present Nature Speaks. From the seventeenth century genius of Claude Lorrain and Nicolas Poussin, into the 19th Century with self-taught artist Winslow Homer and ground-breaking impressionists like Claude Monet, western art entered the 20th century with a strong impetus of landscape innovation. The Chinese tradition was a longer and more varied one, which entered the 20th Century with an increasing willingness to look westwards. The subject matter inspired both hemispheres for equal reasons: both Eastern and Western artists have been capturing nature’s beauty of colour, its shifting light, the inconceivable elegance of its forms and the unpredictable complexion of its landscapes.
