Recently an article’s title read “Iconography demystified. ”
Then on exploring more, this was related to art and it involved intense level of depiction (interpretation of pictures).
Iconography is also practiced in the web development space. Here we wanted to emphasize on art and historic view of this course.
Iconography, is a branch of art history, studies the identification, description, and the interpretation of the content of images. Also, creation of icons related to Culture and History.
This field is receiving research support from government and this strengthens the Indian art and history.

Few courses offer this as a mandatory or elective paper.
Iconography as an expertise extends to Religion, Film and Television.
