Aspects of Art of the Eleventh and Twelfth Centuries by C.R. Dodwell

Professor C. R. Dodwell wrote with authority on most aspects of Western European medieval art. From his doctoral work on The Canterbury School of Illumination, he continued to maintain a steady output of important publications until his death in 1994. This book brings together most of his major papers on the subject of Anglo-Saxon, French and Norman art, and includes the study of the Reichenau school he published with D. H. Turner. There are papers on the major English illuminated manuscripts of the eleventh and twelfth centuries, and studies of metalworking and the Bayeux tapestry. There is a preface by Paul Crossley. Papers include: The Bayeux Tapestry and the French Secular Epic; Un manuscrit enlumine de Jumiege au British Museum; Techniques of Manuscript Painting in Anglo-Saxon Manuscripts; La miniature Anglo-Saxonne; The Final Copy of the Utrecht Psalter and its Relationship with the Utrecht and Eadwine Psalters; Gold Metallurgy in the Twelfth Century: the De Diversis Artibus of Theophilus the Monk; The Meaning of Sculptor in the Romanesque Period; Medieval Attitudes to the Artist; Seculars in Monasteries; Secular Artists; L'originalite iconographique de plusiers illustrations Anglo-Saxonnes de l'Ancien Testament; Losses of Anglo-Saxon Art in the Middle Ages; Reichenau Reconsidered: a Reassessment of the Place of Reichenau in Ottonian Art; A Bibliography of Professor Dodwell's Publications.
