The Byzantine Empire flourished from the 4th century A.D. until the fall of the empire’s capital, Constantinople, in 1453 A.D. Byzantine art is characterized by its strong religious and imperial themes. As the Byzantine Empire represented the political continuation of the Roman Empire, Byzantine art developed in large part from the art of the Roman Empire, which was itself profoundly influenced by ancient Greek art. Byzantine art never lost sight of this classical heritage. During the Byzantine period great fresco paintings and mosaics were produced as well as many luxury items such as carved ivories, jewelry, and enamels. Artistic traditions that originated in the Byzantine Empire, particularly with regard to icon painting and church architecture, are maintained in Greece, Serbia, Bulgaria, Russia and other Eastern Orthodox countries to the present day.
