German to English translations [PRO]
Art/Literary - Art, Arts & Crafts, Painting / medieval religious art
German term or phrase: Bildaufgaben
The context is medieval altar paintings:-

So entwickelten sich rasch um das Altarbild herum bzw. aus dem Altarbild heraus neue, eigenständige *Bildaufgaben*, die sich Stück für Stück aus dem kultisch-sakralen Kontext emanzipieren und letztlich eigene Bildgattungen wie das Genre, das Stilleben oder das Porträt bilden sollten.

And again:

Kaum eine andere *Bildaufgab* hat sich in so kurzer Zeit derart erfolgreich durchsetzen können wie das Altarbild, befriedigte es doch in idealer Weise die Schaulust und das Visualierungsbedürfnis der Gläubigen.
