What are the oldest paintings in the world?

The painter or artist, beyond his ability to create magnificent and extraordinary artistic works, also distinguishes himself from others thanks to his particular style. Since the dawn of time, many artists have been born and have left to mankind paintings never equaled.

The Last Supper

The Last Supper is an emblematic painting of all time, created by the famous artist Leonardo da Vinci. It is thought to be painted at the end of the 15th century. This immense Renaissance fresco, painted on the wall of Santa Delle Grazie in Milan, is an example of Christian art never before conceived. This painting presents Jesus Christ among his apostles. It illustrates the verse in which Jesus announces to his apostles that he was going to be betrayed by one of them. However, the painting goes beyond the religious scene by its complexity and its realization that is the artistic genius of its time.

The Garden of Delights

The Garden of Delights is a painting created by the Dutch painter, Hieronymus Bosch between 1503 and 1510 and is one of the most famous and ancient paintings in the world. This magnificent work now adorns the Prado Museum of Art in Madrid. This triptych, painted in oil on wood, illustrates in its complexity the genesis of the world. It is considered by painting specialists to be one of the surrealism precursors. It must be said that this work had to be impregnated with a little more than reality, hence its complexity and success.

The Birth of Venus

The great canvas of the birth of Venus is one of the masterpieces of the famous painter of the Renaissance period, Sandro Botticelli. This artistic work, very well known in the field, is deposited in the Gallery of Offices in Florence. Indeed, the ancient canvas illustrates the myth of the birth of Venus born from the foam of the sea at dawn. The artist knew how to paint with precision, harmony, and delicacy, his heroine. This piece of art remains famous and represents one of the most expensive works of art in the world.
