Modernist painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries looked beyond ordinary sensory perception in nature and focused on the visual excitement of nature's colors, forms and patterns for their own sake. They saw landscape as an unpredictable environment of fragmented color, rhythm and shapes – allowing them to discard old artistic conventions and to transform our notion of nature's beauty and, consequently, our place within it. They took liberty with color, space and form to evoke feeling rather than literal representation, with their work still remaining inextricably linked to the land and environments that inspired them.
