Overview

"Art of the Middle Ages provides a comprehensive overview of Medieval art and life from Late Antiquity to the Late Gothic period. It shows how the arts flourished with unmatched vitality and diversity against the background of the vast changes that took place throughout Europe from the fourth to the fourteenth century. The authors use contemporary sources that bring to life the attitudes and interests of the Medieval period." "Included in this book are the illuminated manuscripts and goldsmith-work of the Irish Celtic style; the frescoes and mosaics of the Early Christian basilicas; Romanesque architecture, sculpture, and painting, as well as reliquaries and shrines and carved ivories; and the great Gothic cathedrals with their sculpture and stained glass and treasures of painted altar panels, enamels, tapestries, and embroidered vestments." About 690 illustrations, more than half of which are now in full color, provide visual documentation. The book also includes extensive notes to the text, maps, a timetable of Medieval history and art, an updated bibliography reflecting the latest developments in the field of art history, and a full index.
