On Facebook artist friends are nominating each other to do a "Landscape Challenge." When Marguerite Horner asked me to pick three landscape paintings I initially thought of various paintings of nice trees, streams and clouds by Constable, and nice paintings of horses by Stubbs etc but they were all things I liked rather than loved. Here are three paintings whose width is greater than their height, that have always meant a lot to me. I appreciate none of my choices are "pure landscapes" because they all feature people in them but they'll have to do... 1) The Execution of Emperor Maximilian (1869)by Édouard Manet (You can see this painting at The National Gallery in London)
