- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Gothic art finds its roots in the powerful architecture of the cathedrals of northern France. It is a medieval art movement that evolved throughout Europe over more than 200 years. Leaving curved Roman forms behind, the architects started using flying buttresses and pointed arches to open up cathedrals to daylight. A period of great economic and social change, the Gothic era also saw the development of a new iconography celebrating the Holy Mary – in drastic contrast to the fearful themes of dark Roman times. Full of rich changes in all of the various art forms (architecture, sculpture, painting, etc.), Gothic art paved the way for the Italian Renaissance and International Gothic movement.

1) You cannot download this to a Windows 7 PC w/o installing Nook Study. 2) These files are PDFs. I would have been much happier with an EPUB 3)200 pages, very nice color images but you can't zoom THAT close. I've got EPUB art books that you can zoom close enough to see the brush strokes. If this were an EPUB file I could download to my PC without installing Nook Study I'd give this book 5 stars. You have been warned.
