English: The world landscape, a translation of the German Weltlandschaft, is a type of composition in Western painting showing an imaginary panoramic landscape view seen from an elevated viewpoint and including mountains and lowlands, water, and buildings. There is normally a narrative subject, but the figures comprising this are dwarfed by their surroundings. The world landscape first appeared in painting in the work of the Early Netherlandish painter Joachim Patinir (c. 1480 – 1524), most of whose few surviving paintings are of this type, usually showing religious subjects.
