    Abstract:
    Never more than at the present time, so fraught with difficulty, has the question of mans’s relationship with nature been so topical. A complex, dynamic relationship in which the progressive technical emancipation of man has accompanied a growing need for nature to be safeguarded, preserved and protected – the result of an inexorable inversion of roles which has seen man move from being the victim of uncontrollable forces to the principal destroyer of the earth which nourishes him, and of the ecosystem of which he is an integral part. This paper is a brief study on the artistical approach to ecology in the 20th cent.
