Buying artworks on the theme of "History"

If the main vocation of Art is above all to exalt beauty in all its forms, it can also constitute a precious testimony of times gone by through the representation of outstanding historical moments and figures. Revolts, revolutions, battles, wars, political events, discoveries, catastrophes ... so many historical events which forever mark an era and which the painter can relay through the prism of his brush. The inescapable march of History constitutes a subject both romantic and tragic which allowed us to enjoy the most beautiful paintings in the history of Art, including "Liberty leading the people" by Eugène Delacroix or "Guernica" by the Spanish painter Pablo Picasso.
