historical events depicted in art 

History has affected art in many ways from good and bad invents for example wars, crowning’s of kings and other grand events. War is one of the many topics artist uses if they feel it is right or wrong for example Emanuel Lezutze Washington crossing the Delaware. This painting shows the brave men in war fighting for our freedom to protect their country they want to see. But also the bad like Jacques Callot depicting’s of the thirty year war showing women being raped and cruel acts by people who were supposed to be good. History’s affects are very good on art because whether you agree with the artist or not you can understand from their emotions that made them create they're art pieces, by looking at they're works you the viewer can get a sense of what that artist felt and was trying to get across to us the viewer.
