The River over artistic currents - An ordinary subject for an extraordinary painting

The river floods French painting with countryside and city landscapes, not to mention the views of Paris. And yet river painting is not a genre in itself in landscape art. It would be futile to estimate the number of landscapers and even more the number of paintings produced by the thousands both by painters and amateurs in the 19th century who show the river. How to paint it? On the motive? From memory? From the classical ideal to the realism of impressionism - or is it not the opposite -, the river reflects the questionings of painters about their profession. But why will the river have been painted so much from 1750 to 1910 if it is not a genre?
