Collage, Traditional and religious
Galeria de Benifallet
Religious Art is that which depicts biblical themes. The art done throughout the centuries was initiated by the church as it sought to relay messages from God to the people. Examples of such work can be found dating back to the 14th century- 17th century. Romanesque scenes as a backdrop were a favorite due to the Roman Catholic influences started in Italy.
The Renaissance (16th century) followed, as great artists were employed to create iconic altar pieces and classic works of art..It was an exciting time across much of Europe as artisans experimented on themes to depict the historical religious messages in a variety of ways. Paintings, mosaics, carvings and sculptures were produced prolifically.
