It is an interesting fact that the inclusion of what would commonly be perceived as eyesores in landscape paintings can actually give them aesthetic and appealing qualities. The painting Totes Meer by Paul Nash depicts a scrapheap of World War II aircraft and yet has a haunting beauty that is hard to explain. Artists of the English Romantic movement were inspired by derelict and ruined buildings and captured their strange configurations with the same elegance and nostalgia. Similar effects are evoked by Andreas Gursky in his photographs of landscapes and factories. Peter Prendergast also is inspired by these blots on the landscape and produces vigorous abstract studies of Welsh open cast slate mines.
