From Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of Buda
In the late 18th and early 19th century, Serbian art boasted of skilled masters who successfully met the rising demand for portraiture as well as the unabated demand for icon painting.Ecclesiastical architecture easily melded with the imperatives of the new era of Classicism.The architectonics of altar partitions, with their accent on the construction of classical pillars and ornamention, embraced the shapes inspired by antiquity.Ecclesiastical art remained tied to the recently adopted experiences of the baroque period.
