Catalog on categories: «Easel painting»
Easel painting — a painting sort which works have independent value and are perceived irrespective of an environment. Literally — the painting created on the machine (easel).
Performing easel painting — a picture — is created on non-stationary (unlike monumental painting) and not utilitarian (unlike decorative painting) a basis (a canvas, a cardboard, a board, paper, silk) and assumes the independent and not caused by an environment perception. The main materials of easel painting — oil, tamper and water color paints, gouache, a pastel, acryle. In the Far East painting by ink, (generally — monochrome), often integrating a calligraphy has gained primary distribution.
