• Byzantine Art: This type of art was easily recognizable because of its lack of realism in the paintings, artists focused more on the purpose and the symbolism of their art, instead of focusing on to make it look real
• Romanesque Art: It started around 1000AD to around 1300, where the Gothic Art period started
• This type of art was influenced by Byzantine art and the Romans
• The focus of this type of art was religion and Christianity
• The difference of the tis art compared to the religious art in the Byzantine type of art was that here they included different architecture details like large murals on walls, stained glass art, and carvings on building and walls
