People and art were inextricably linked throughout history

Person’s awareness of himself is reflected in the stone figures, in the lineaments of architectural monuments.
Human traits and emotions were depicted in paintings, sculpture groups. The problem being, religion and world-view found their expression in the works of art.
The functions of art are to help to understand the world through the emotional perception, to expand the horizons, to awaken the creative forces, to form the spiritual image of a person.
The moment when a person faced the art must have been the greatest discovery, unmatched in the history, according to the opportunities that it had given.

Art does not exist outside the time and society, and in terms of its content it is social and inseparably connected with national traditions and eras.

The painter, rethinking what he has seen, unraveling the mysteries of life in his own way, tries to project his attitude with the help of artistic images, involving us in the intricate process of self-knowledge, making not only our eyes and brain work but also our imagination, mobilizing our spiritual power for the action.
The history of art in human history is a complex picture of the development of various national schools, movements, styles and traditions, without temporal and geographic boundaries.

The origin of art goes to antiquity. The issue of the origin of art has been exciting the best philosophical minds for centuries, but not too much is known about the artistic activity of mankind in the early stages of development.
Numerous works of art (rock paintings, stone and bone sculptures) had appeared much earlier than that a conscious representation of human artistic creativity was formed.

The origin of art goes back to the primitive era when a man first tried to reflect his ideas about the world in art, which contributed to the consolidation and transfer of knowledge and skills, the emergence of another form of communication between people.
According to archaeologists, the major art forms (sculpture, painting, graphics) had appeared already in the Paleolithic (Old Stone Age), about 35-10 thousand years BC.

It should be noted that the artistic activities of man in primitive society was inextricably linked with all existing forms of spiritual and material culture: mythology, religion, everyday way of life.
Artistic, spiritual culture existed in close unity with the material, forming a primitive syncretic, i.e., a united, cultural complex, which was disintegrated into separate spheres of culture only many centuries later: religion, art, sports and science.

The images, created by hand of prehistoric man, are the part of a single chain of artistic-religious and theatrical magic effect, reflecting the synthesis of the material and spiritual culture of man living in that long-ago era.

Even today, the art has not lost its position. With the development of various industries, light and heavy, with the production of sheet metal forming, art was neither lost in the turmoil of our everyday lives or has stayed at that stage of its development, but it has formed new trends and directions.
