How could I write the title of a section or of a chapter in landscape mode?

I mean without rotating the document. What I need to have, to explain me better, is this:

enter image description here

Do't mind about the plot, I already created a page with the landscape mode for the plot and it's awesome.

What I miss is the "title of this section" in landscape mode, above the plot.

Thank you!!

I already inserted the plot with the cose


What I need is the title in section mode above the plot, in landscape mode.

Let's pretend I have to write "TITILE OF THE PLOT" as I wrote in the paper.

  • We would need your code for the plot in landscape mode. If I understand well, you want the plot rotated, but a ‘normal’ section title?

  • @Bernard I'll add the code in the question to make it clearer

  • How does this differ from rotating the document? That is, why not use the landscape environment for the plot and title? (Load e.g. pdflscape or whatever.)

  • @cfr I actually did not think about that! o.O

Is it something like this you want?


\usepackage{graphicx, rotating, caption, lscape, threeparttable}% \usepackage{amsmath}


\begin{landscape} \section{About Piero di Cosimo}
\caption{The Battle of San Romano}


enter image description here

  • No, the Title shall be in landscape mode, at the left of the image you put. I wrote "above" but I expressed myself bad: I meant "above" with respect to the landscape mode lol

  • @Alan Turing: I've modified my answer. Is it more like you want (sorry for the poor quality of the image!)?
