Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Eleven chapters cover the period from 300 AD-1400 AD, which encompasses Early Christian and Byzantine art through Gothic art. The text is supplemented by 250 illustrations, 90 of which are in color. Art of the Middle Ages is not focused on individual artists and personal styles. Instead, we are faced with a series of monuments and works defined by historical forces and geographic areas. The combination of authoritative text and excellent photography, drawings, plans, manuscript illuminations, and stained glass window reproductions results in a high-quality, affordable introduction and overview. Historical events juxtaposed with art historical events in the chronology are also supported in the text. The attractive layout contains ample white space. This is an economical yet thorough treatment of this period of art. Classes and individuals will equally profit from this book. Highly recommended. Category: The Arts. KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2002, Norton, Thames & Hudson, 320p. illus. maps. bibliog. index., , Norwood, MA
