"Heaven and Hell" is a famous painting by Octave Tassaert. This painting has a similar orientation to that of a portrait painting. At the bottom of the painting, the viewer sees a person surrounded by minions. As the eye moves up the painting, the people begin to appear more angel-like and the painting features lighter colors and a more dream-like quality.
Painted by William-Adolphe Bougureau in 1868, "A Soul Brought to Heaven" shows two angels carrying a deceased woman to heaven. In the distance, a golden light offsets the outline of another angel or possibly God.Learn more about Painting
