Greece repeated the same main stage that progress On the friezes
Greek temples, we see coloured bas-reliefs depicting
sacrifices, battles, processions, games - all with a religious character.
On the pediments we see painted sculptures more or less
associated with the tympanum, and having as its object the triumphs of gods or heroes.
Even when he reached the statues, is positively separated from the buildings, we still find
them painted, and only in the last periods of the Greek civilization
occurred final differentiation of sculpture from painting. In
Christian art, we see clear traces of the parallel of origin. All
ancient pictorial and sculptural images were of a religious nature
- represented Christ, the crucifixion, the Holy virgin, the Holy family, the apostles,
saints. They were inseparable part of Church architecture and served
one of the means to the arousal of piety, as still in the Catholic
countries. Moreover, the ancient sculpted image of Christ on the cross,
the Holy virgin, the saints were painted, and it is enough to remember colored
Madonnas and crucified, which is still abundant in the
Catholic churches and main roads to understand the remarkable
the fact that painting and sculpture continue to be in close contact with each
friend where continues their close relationship with their ancestor. Even
when Christian sculpture was pretty clearly differentiated already from
painting, and even then her character was still religious and
government; it was used for tombs in churches and statues
of kings; meanwhile, as the painting, where it was not purely spiritual,
was used to decorate the palaces, but in addition to the image of the Royal
people dedicated to still exclusively consecrated to the legends. Only in a very
recent painting and sculpture became purely secular art.
Only during the few last centuries the painting was divided into
historical, landscape, marine, architectural, genre, painting
animals, the so-called nature morte (the image of inanimate objects)
etc., and the sculpture has become heterogeneous relative to the real and the ideal
subjects with which it deals.
