Lambert was one of the pioneers of landscape painting in early eighteenth-century Britain. This painting presents the landscape without the sorts of buildings – palaces or an aristocratic estate – which traditionally featured in such views. This could be seen as evidence of a new appreciation of nature for its own sake. Certainly, during the intellectual developments of the century the landscape became the focus for discussions about the relationship between painting and poetry, and aesthetic ideas such as beauty and the sublime.
