Cinematic art is a comparatively recent art form with its birth and development inherently connected to the invention of its ever changing technology. Its origins, however, lay in the literary as much as the visual arts traditions. Through art history, many artworks executed in traditional visual arts media contain seeds of diverse aspects of film practice. Such seminal visual arts traditions, in turn, stem from several sources, among them the visual arts practices of the European antiquity. Together with these arts practices, it is essential to include the literary tradition of art historiography of the European antiquity as a literary companion to an examination of the extant artworks. Such an examination provides for an unexpected but valid theoretical framework, focused on the construct of representing time, within which the art of filmmaking can be better understood and explained.
