Painting is an art that has been with us since the beginning. We see the first task of paintings in Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, where he lists it as a task that man was accustomed to at the time. This was majorly rock painting, which led to the inventions of rather what seems to be the most expensive and exotic paints in the world.
It is obvious that you have never even for a second thought that there ever existed any expensive paintings really. The truth is that there are and they either leave you in shock or make you wish you were the inventor.
