Historical scenes in painting and art

History painting - one of main genres of fine art, it dedicated to re-create past and present events, and has historical value. The history painting often intertwines with other genres - genre painting (so-called historical genre painting), portrait (portrait-historical compositions), landscape painting (historical landscape) and military art. Evolution of history painting in many respects is caused by progress of historical views and it was generated finally together with development of a scientific view on history (completely only at 18-19 centuries).
