Pictures of the historical genre in the online gallery
Painting on historical subjects originated in the Renaissance and transferred to the canvas great historical events from stories from the Bible and mythological legends to important everyday events corresponding to their time and telling about the everyday life of people. This genre was considered the highest step in the achievements of painters, therefore, paintings were painted only on significant topics that deserve to be displayed on canvas with a deep inner meaning. Despite the fact that this trend reached its climax in the nineteenth century in the wake of the extinction of interest in religion and myths, our gallery displays the work of contemporary artists.
