Art reflects the times from which it was created and all and the events that shaped the world during that period. It's a window into history, and artists throughout the ages have told their version of how things were when they were alive through their timeless creations. It is their personal record, condensed into just a few pieces of canvas or paper, but tells a pretty in-depth revealing story all the same. Even the techniques used by the artists in question reveal the surroundings of their day.
