Religion is an organized collection of belief systems, cultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to spirituality and, sometimes, to moral values. There are roughly 4,200 religions in the world. A global 2012 poll reports that 59% of the world's population is religious, 23% are not religious, and 13% are atheists.
The five largest religious groups by population, estimated to account for between 5 and 7 billion people, are Christianity 2.0 billion, Islam 1.2 billion, Hinduism 811 million, Buddhism 360 million, and Chinese folk religion 385 million.
The art religious is a definition of what constitutes music, calligraphy, drawings, religious paintings, dance, public service or other aspects of human culture. Religions may also contain mythology. Oil painting religion is artistic imagery using religious inspiration and motifs and is often intended to uplift the mind to the spiritual.
1, Christian Religious PaintingsChristian sacred art is produced in an attempt to illustrate, supplement and portray in tangible form the principles of Christianity. Most Christian groups use or have used oil painting to some extent, although some have had strong objections to some forms of paintings religious, and there have been major periods of iconoclasm within Christianity. Most Christian religious paintings is allusive, or built around themes familiar to the intended observer. One of the most common Christian themes in religion paintings is that of the Virgin Mary holding the infant Jesus. Another is that of Christ on the Cross. And more, Saint Agnes depicted with a lamb, Saint Peter with keys, Saint Patrick with a shamrock.
The Renaissance saw an increase in monumental secular religion art, but until the Protestant Reformation Christian paintings continued to be produced in great quantities, both for churches and clergy and for the laity. During this time, Michelangelo Buonarroti painted the Sistine Chapel and carved the famous Pietà, Gianlorenzo Bernini created the massive columns in St. Peter's Basilica, and Leonardo da Vinci painted the Last Supper. The Reformation had a huge effect on Christian religious paintings, rapidly bringing the production of public Christian religious artwork to a virtual halt in Protestant countries, and causing the destruction of most of the art that already existed.
As a secular, non-sectarian, universal notion of art arose in 19th century Western Europe, secular religious artists occasionally treated Christian themes (Bouguereau, Manet) — but only rarely was a Christian religious oil painter included in the historical canon (such as Rouault or Stanley Spencer). However many modern religious artists such as Eric Gill, Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, Jacob Epstein, Elizabeth Frink and Graham Sutherland have produced well-known religious oil paintings for churches.
2, Buddhist PaintingsBuddhist religious art originated on the Indian subcontinent following the historical life of Siddhartha Gautama, 6th to 5th century BC, it spread throughout Asia and the world.
Buddhist art religion developed to the north through Central Asia and into Eastern Asia to form the Northern branch of Buddhism religious art, and to the east as far as Southeast Asia to form the Southern branch of Buddhist religious pictures. In India, Buddhist art religious flourished and even influenced the development of Hindu art, until Buddhism nearly disappeared in India around the 10th century due in part to the vigorous expansion of Islam alongside Hinduism.
Most Tibetan Buddhist paintings religious are related to the practice of Vajrayana or Buddhist tantra. Tibetan religion in art includes thangkas and mandalas, often including depictions of Buddhas and bodhisattvas. Creation of Buddhist art in religion is usually done as a meditation as well as creating an object as aid to meditation.
Two places suggest more vividly than any others the vitality of Buddhist cave painting from about the 5th century AD. One is Ajanta, a site in India long forgotten until discovered in 1817. The other is Dunhuang in China, one of the great oasis staging posts on the Silk Road...The religion paintings range from calm devotional images of the Buddha to lively and crowded scenes, often featuring the seductively full-breasted and narrow-waisted women more familiar in Indian sculpture than in religious oil painting.
3, Islamic PaintingsA prohibition against depicting representational images in religious art, as well as the naturally decorative nature of Arabic script, led to the use of calligraphic decorations, which expressed ideals of order and nature. Islamic paintings religious has reflected this balanced, harmonious world-view. It focuses on spiritual essence rather than physical form.
The Islamic religious painters are challenged to "breathe life" into their creations and threatened with punishment on the Day of Judgment. Partially as a result of this religious sentiment, figures in painting were often stylized and, in some cases, the destruction of figurative religious artworks occurred.
Calligraphy is the most highly regarded and most fundamental element of Islamic art religion. While most religious pictures had legible inscriptions, not all Muslims would have been able to read them.
