Landscape painting underwent a profound transformation during the 1920s, shifting away from the aesthetic idealism and storytelling of classical or historical landscapes. Many artists sought a greater connection with the natural world and chose to paint outdoors in untouched environments or rural places where life appeared less hurried. Others enjoyed the juxtaposition of nature and industry and used innovative painting techniques, non-traditional compositions, and non-naturalistic hues to depict subjects in a less representational, more emotional way. These notecards exemplify the modern approach to landscape painting of the period.
