Gombrich gave Blake a positive evaluation, he was well aware that the development of European art in the next century did not follow Blake's line. It was two landscape painters who really played a role in the development of European art in the 19th century. This is what Gombrich said of Turner [Fig. 2] and Constable [Fig. 3]: The artist's new freedom of choice of subject matter fueled another branch of painting - landscape painting. Until then, it had been seen as a secondary branch of art, and people would not revere as artists painters who made a living by depicting landscapes such as country houses, parks, or picturesque locations .
