Byzantine Art

5th Century A.D. to 1453

Byzantine art is the art of the Byzantine Empire, centered in Constantinople (now Istanbul).
Byzantine art was completely focused on the needs of the Orthodox church, in the painting of icons and the decoration of churches with frescoes and mosaics.

The Byzantine style basically ended with the fall of Constantinople to the Turks in 1453, during the European Renaissance. However, its influence continued for a considerable time in Russia and elsewhere where the Orthodox church held sway.
