Landscape iconography and perception

Abstract : Social perceptions of landscapes are inherited from the history of relationships between societies and nature. Several landscape models have stood out in the course of the centuries: the pastoral or bucolic, the land of plenty, present since antiquity, to which have been added since the eighteenth century the sublime and the picturesque. Art and literature played an essential role in the formation and the spreading of these models, but today several scales of perception can be identified: a global one referring to these models, a second one on a local scale and expressing attachment to a place, to the local culture of nature, or to the social relationships in a place, and finally, an individual scale in reference to the landscaped experience of the individual. Nowadays, citizens' experiences of participation in the planning of their living environment emphasize perceptions on a local scale.
