World Famous Great Painters
By Pustak Mahal
The story of painting goes as far back as 20,000 years ago, to a time when Man had not yet learned to write. He looked around the world, and tried to reproduce what he saw in drawings. Man was just a caveman in those days, and the history of art began in caves. Art has progressed through the ages. It has organized itself into different styles in terms of form, as well as content. Many painters belong to certain movements, giving different treatment to space, perspective, light and colour.
