Nature typically inspires a landscape painting. Paintings of landscapes often resemble something that the artist has seen. Vincent Van Gogh painted landscapes of Italy - his home country - and more often of his home town. He even painted his bedroom once. When that wasn’t enough for him, he moved to the night sky and painted his famous “Starry Night” picture.

Monet painted the water lillies of Paris, and this is one of his most famous paintings. He also painted poppies, a bridge with a river flowing under it, and many other pieces of scenery that he found near where he lived and when he traveled. Landscapes are some of the oldest paintings around. They have been done as long as we have been fascinated with the places around us.
