This course analyses how the relationship between art and nature has been constructed through aesthetic and symbolic representations as diverse as that of the mystic Garden of Eden, landscape painting since the Renaissance, the sublime in nature, French and English gardens, and urban parks, such as Central Park. It also examines the direct involvement with nature in Earthworks and Land Art since the late 1960s and, as artists became conscious of environmental issues in the eighties, in Environmental Art, Ecological Art, and art interventions within ecosystems.
