Bellini's Landscapes

Why in the 1500s did the most significant developments in Landscape Painting occur in Venice, a city surrounded by water with no immediate access to landscape?

This paper is a comparative analysis of two prominent theories of learning, Realism and Rationalism. I critique each theory in relation to the other and use my practice as a means of reflecting and diffracting each theory. I discuss the ancient origin of these theories within the work of Aristotle and Plato and consider the contemporary relevancy of their theories on art and forms to creative post-graduate education
