The number of styles and trends in the visual arts has no limits. They appeared at different times and often characterized an era.
Each historical period is characterized by its own worldview, which consists of many positions: aesthetics, philosophy, religion, political ideas, scientific ideas and other factors.
As a rule, styles in art do not have clear boundaries; they smoothly pass one into another. As a rule, from one art style another always appeared, undergoing changes in connection with time. Many genres coexist at the same time and therefore there are no “pure styles” at all.
