Perceptions of Byzantium and Its Neighbors (843-1261)by Olenka Z. Pevny (Editor), Metropolitan Museum of Art (Other)
Scholars investigate the production, attribution, and dating of Byzantine artworks and explicate the complex
In this book authorities from around the world examine Byzantine art, discussing its guiding principles and the rich variety of its forms and viewing it as an expression of the complexity and intensity of Byzantium's relations to its neighbors.
Scholars investigate the production, attribution, and dating of Byzantine artworks and explicate the complex relationship between Byzantine and its indigenous cultures. They conclude that just as the influence of modern empires can be traced far beyond their borders by the hegemony of their artistic traditions, the art of the Byzantine empire attests to the full range of its political and cultural power. Lavishly illustrated, this book will be of interest to scholars and nonspecialists alike.
