Such interpretations dismiss the reunification with nature proposed by landscape painting as an aesthetic fiction. Art, in other words, should not deceive us into thinking we are actually making contact with nature; in pictures the culture merely constructs a nature. But materialist art history is often tinged with its own nostalgia, not for the pre-modern and pre-technological art of nature, but for a pre-bourgeois life of nature. Matthias Eberle, for example, following Schiller, Marx and Adorno, sees the Renaissance landscape as the expression of an urban or bourgeois consciousness of a new distance and detachment from the land.

It is style that makes Altdorfer’s landscapes so distinctive in tone and texture, so different from anything else around them, and indeed so different from one another.

This book will instead direct questions from within the history of German painting, and particularly from within Altdorfer’s career.
