Large scale paintings have been around for centuries. In general, artists prefer using oil painting for this format because its drying time enables them to go back and rework parts of the painting as it nears completion. They also prefer painting on canvas because it's easier to transport than other supports such as wooden panels.

During the Renaissance, a number of artists painted impressive scenes, often drawn from religion or mythology, on canvases that were several meters wide. The Wedding at Cana, a work by Veronese which you can see in the Louvre, is more than 6m x 9m! In 18th century Europe, large paintings were generally reserved for history paintings. The size of the painting helped the artist (and often the patron who had commission it) make an impact and truly impress the viewer, a bigger canvas meant the subject matter was represented with dignity and gradeure.  A perfect example is The Coronation of Napoleon by Jacques-Louis David, a huge canvas full of splendid of colours and details that the viewer almost feels overwhelmed by its splendor.

Towards the end of the 19th century artists turned to other genres. Edouard Manet used large scale canvases to paint his realistic scenes of the lower classes and Claude Monet painted expansive landscapes, for example this beautiful water lilies series which now hangs in the Museum of l'Orangerie. Later, other artists like Pablo Picasso, tackled the subject of politics in enormous modern paintings such as Guernica.

Abstract painting didn't put an end to large scale paintings, on the contrary abstract artists loved them! They had a larger surface to experiment with and the big canvases meant that the viewer could fully immerse themselves in the painter's work. The painters of the abstract expressionist movement such as Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock and Barnett Newman preferred using large canvases to create their abstract paintings.

Even today artists continue to choose to large scale canvas to create contemporary paintings. Gerhard Richter uses them for both his abstract paintings and figurative paintings, and Jenny Saville paints larger-than-life human bodies.
