1.4 The modern era of Heraldry


The creation of coat-of-arms is a living art which has been practiced for centuries. Consequently, heraldic artists at different times were influenced by different artistic styles.

The Baroque artists created highly ornamental coat-of- arms.

The later part of the last century introduced the "landscape" style - a depiction of an entire scene.
