Overview


This volume provides an introduction to the much neglected topic of sculptural friezes, ranging from England to Normandy, the Loire Valley and Northern Italy. Frieze sculpture has until now been one of the least studied aspects of Romanesque art, though examples are to be found all over Europe, set in facades and external walls of many churches. The essays collected here reflect the diversity of aspects considered: problems of narrative and iconography, regional groups, filiations, and conservation. Summarized in English and in French, the papers have further significance in establishing a record of the present state of some of the great architectural decoration in the medieval European tradition.
