‘Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop’ airs Saturday on WCNY

Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop follows the lives and artistic paths of celebrated artists such as Turner, Monet and Renoir.

Dunlop journeys to the locations these artists visited and learns how they transformed that vision into a familiar painting, such as Monet’s water lily garden in Giverny, Van Gogh’s asylum in Provence and the Hudson River Painters’ Kaaterskill Falls in New York.

In each episode, Dunlop takes viewers to a beautiful place that inspired a famous artist and sets the artists in their historical context, discussing who, when, where, how and why they painted.

Dunlop  then sets his easel in the same place that the legendary artist set his, and paints that same landscape in the style of the artist. He explains each step of the painting process and provides artistic, technical, optical and perceptual insights.
