This week, the enduring fascination of landscape reigns. While the National Museum of Photography in Bradford shows 20th-century responses to the land, the Terrace Gallery of Harewood House, Leeds, has an exhibition of landscape paintings by leading contemporary masters of the genre, including Maurice Cockrill, William Tillyer, John Virtue and Victoria Arney. This is juxtaposed with the fields of the estate and the watercolour rooms of the main house. Boasting works byTurner, Girtin and Varley, these rooms are an exercise in curatorial ingenuity.

Meanwhile, John Virtue is also the subject of a retrospective at the Arnolfini in Bristol, while Victoria Arney is showing recent works, with talented landscapist Diane Howse, at Reed's Wharf Gallery. North of the border, Roger Billcliffe in Glasgow offers the spare and contemplative hills and churchyards of Bet Low.
