Oil Paintings with religious context have a long history. Usual they were commissioned by the church but since the 15th century also by private clients. Often they are utilized for the deep rooted tradition of the home altar 'Herrgottswinkel' where the families come together. The image of Mary is maybe the most common representation in Christian art. The life and crucifixion of Jesus also occupies a large space in this art movement.
