A brief history of oil painting

Published by in The oil painting ·

Between the 5th and 8th centuries, the Chinese and the Indians made oil paintings on Buddhist shrines. They used oil painting because oil helps to restore the desired image of divinity, which they had in their view. With a delay of several centuries, specifically in the 15th century, European painters took this technique as the primary way to paint, this way replacing the early transition of Dutch painting in northern Europe, almost completely replacing tempera colours, which were traditional in that period.
