Overview

This lavishly illustrated book is the first to examine the development of Gothic sculpture throughout Europe. It discusses not only the most famous monuments - such as the cathedrals of Chartres, Amiens, and Reims, Westminster Abbey, and the Siena Duomo - but also less familiar buildings in France, England, Italy, Germany, Spain, and Scandinavia. A synthesis of new research, interpretations, methodologies, and insights that have evolved over the last twenty years, the text is accompanied by hundreds of illustrations, including many photographs taken specially for the book. Together the text and the images provide a strikingly beautiful and authoritative survey for students and the general reader.
