Ever since the Paleolithic era, human beings have been expressing themselves artistically. Basically, two forms of art were created in the Paleolithic, painting and sculpture. Stone Age artists painted bison, horses and deer, as well as hunting scenes, on the walls of caves, and also carved sculptural objects in the form of small statues. The Neolithic and Bronze Ages that followed saw the continuation of painting and statuary. Artists in Ancient Egypt, the Neat East, Greece and Rome, painted images on tomb, temple and palace walls, and created bronze and carved stone statuary, to represent gods and rulers. Following antiquity, the oil paintings and carved marble statuary made in the Mediaeval and Renaissance periods reached very high levels of aesthetic beauty. For our client’s needs, LR Antiques has available a large selectin of 18th and 19th century paintings, and an exquisite collection of 19th century carved marble statuary.
