|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.
In the 19th and 20th centuries new charges were introduced
into heraldry and the style became more realistic
The later part of the last century introduced the "landscape"
style - a depiction of an entire scene.
