Byzantine art emerged in Constantinople, which was the capital of the Byzantine Empire during the 4th century. The Byzantine Empire was a continuation of the Eastern Roman Empire and was centered in the region that is now modern-day Turkey. Byzantine art was characterized by its rich use of color, intricate patterns and designs, and its focus on religious themes. It was heavily influenced by the classical art of ancient Greece and Rome, as well as the early Christian art of the early Byzantine period. The art produced in Constantinople during this time period was used to decorate churches, palaces, and other important buildings, and was also used to tell religious stories and convey religious messages to the people.
