Anthropomorphic Landscape

Landscape shaped like a head of a human being!

In anthropomorphic landscape art, when the image is rotated 90º, the landscape image transforms into the likeness of the human face.

This type of painting was a popular anthropomorphic genre in the 17th century. And, it was a fad in Netherlands, also in some European countries.

The most popular type of anthropomorphic landscape painting is that of a portrait of man’s head with a beard in horizontal position.

Another aspect to note about these paintings is that they are quite similar. It is extremely difficult to say which painter got inspired from which painter’s painting.
