Wall Art

The earliest known paintings are considered to be from the Paleolithic times. These early cave paintings were mostly of a recording of the hunt showing horses, buffalo or mammoths.These cave drawings were found all over the world. 

Chinese painting is one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world. Instead of recording the events of hunting. Their paintings were ornamental and consisted of patterns using geometric design with spirals, zigzags, dots, or animals, landscape and flowers. 

Wall art and paintings grew and they became a symbol of the period of the times. Churches and wealthy merchants would commission artist for religious pieces

By the mid-19th-century painters became liberated from the demands of their patronage to only paint scenes from religion. 

In the latter third of the century Impressionists like Manet, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Van Gogh. They laid the road to our modern paintings of today.
