Naturalism became one of the major trends of the 19th century and, combined with realism of the subject, led to impressionism and modern art. Naturalism is often associated with plein air practice (painting landscapes and other scenes from life out-of-doors). Throughout art history, landscape painting has remained a prominent art genre, alongside portrait, genre and history painting. The desire to represent the natural world artistically has been shared across the world. Landscape painting can be found in Western art as well as in Asian works in China and Japan.
