Heavenly Art

Heavenly art has the power to lift up your spirit. And it’s now as popular as ever. Indeed, many modern artists paint angels and other spiritual subjects. Some even specialize in this theme.

Interestingly, this is not a brand new trend. Religious art (especially Christian art) was very popular during the Middle Ages. In fact, most of the surviving works of art produced in Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire are works of Christian art. Lots of Christian-oriented artworks were produced during the Renaissance as well, even though a new interest in secular subjects was emerging.

However, many leading artists still managed to produce a good amount of religious-themed works, mostly on their own (not commissioned works).

In modern times, devotional art has gown in popularity. Angels are a very popular theme and you will find a wide array of works depicting these divine beings. Below you will find a selection of heavenly art.

The human race is the basis on which heaven is founded, is because man was last created, and that which is last created is the basis of all that precedes.
~ Emanuel Swedenborg
