The depictions of animal painting belong to realistic painting. The best known artist of realistic animal depiction in the 15th century is Albrecht Dürer. Dürer developed realistic animal painting in still life, later known as "animal piece". Depictions of animals are also often set symbolically, especially in the Early Christian depictions. In the middle of the 19th century, Christian Malli especially devoted himself to animal painting, his speciality being cattle and sheep. One of the best known representatives of the 20th century is Franz Marc.
