    Figures in landscapes were added for the sense of scale, and from there, for poetic reasons of the human drama, because the landscape was a theatre set. When figures were lost from the paintings, the emphasis was on special effects done with brush and new pigments and mediums. Majority of the late 19th and 20th century painting is about special effects, accompanied by loads of gobbledygook and verbiage about “bold new visions”. Being a painter suddenly meant being detached from all reality, so that the industry created a layer of interpreters whose job was to sell those wild experiments into deep pockets. Something like modern movie industry: horrible acting compensated by tons of special effects and camera work, and reviewers who write apologetic psychological gibberish to sell us tickets became necessary part of the equation.
