Genre painting themes have appeared in nearly all art traditions. Flemish Baroque painting and Dutch Golden Age painting dominated the field until the 18th century.

In the mid-19th century, in the United States, "genre became its own separate entity (for a time), through the works of painters such as Winslow Homer, George Caleb Bingham and Eastman Johnson.
