‘The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.’
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The 17th century had witnessed many events of great importance for painting; one of them was establishing landscape as an independent genre. Mutual interplay between land and sky has inspired many Dutch painters, who created images with a more and more lowered vanishing point. In the following centuries this tendency was continued and enriched by influence of Japanese woodcuts.
Henry David Thoreau wrote: ‘Thank God men cannot fly, and lay waste the sky as well as the earth.’ How many times we let go of our thoughts and just look into the sky?
