665 Discovered works of art
In this category you will find impressive paintings of historical battles and mythological battles such as David versus Goliath.

In a time before the invention of photography, art and painting were important means of documenting historical events and recording them for posterity. Battles and wars are - once considered completely valueless - important historical events and therefore since ancient times important subjects in the art. One could therefore see paintings of battles as part of the war coverage of history, since the characters and the events themselves were recorded for the present and posterity. At the same time, paintings of battle scenes are political statements that can glorify or demonize the characters - depending on which of the acting parties the artist is close to, or whether he wants to praise or condemn war as such.

Regardless, paintings of battles are often due to the abundance of people and details of the most imposing works of painting, where you can always discover new aspects. The depicted figures are seldom portrayed in rigid poses, but in the fruitful moment, that is, in the moment of a movement, which hints at both the preceding part of the movement and the one yet to be performed. In this way, the pictures reach their own dynamics and actually remind more of snapshots in photography than of arrangements composed by the painter.

Target groups of these paintings are art lovers as well as history buffs and collectors of militaria. If you belong to one of these groups, you will surely find it here. The team of MeisterDrucke.com wishes you a lot of fun browsing.
