This comprehensive and authoritative study of medieval visual arts in Europe covers the period from Early Christian and Byzantine, through 'Barbarian', Carolingian and Ottonian, to Romanesque and Gothic. Architecture, painting, sculpture and the decorative arts are all vividly discussed and richly illustrated. Benton covers topics ranging from great cathedrals, monasteries and churches to alterpieces, reliquaries, gargoyles and carvings. Of particular interest are sections on secular and ecclesiastical clothing, armour, textiles, domestic architecture and the medieval social structure. The author also describes the techniques used by medieval artists in fresco and mural painting, enamelling, manuscript illumination, stained glass production and tapestry weaving.

  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
The first millennium saw a rich and distinctive artistic tradition form in Europe. While books had long been central to the Christian religious tradition, education, and culture, they now became an important artistic medium, sometimes decorated with brilliant colours and precious metals. Lawrence Nees explores issues of artist patronage, craftsmanship, holy men and women, monasteries, secular courts, and the expressive and educational roles of artistic creation. He discusses early Christian art within the late Roman tradition, and the arts of the newly established kingdoms of northern Europe not as opposites, but as different aspects of a larger historical situation. This approach reveals the onset of an exciting new visual relationship between the church and the populace throughout medieval Europe, restoring a previously marginalized subject to a central status in our artistic and cultural heritage.

Commemorates the art historian C.R. Dodwell with a collection of essays by leading scholars. Variously reporting new discoveries, reinterpreting major artefacts and contributing to current theoretical debate, the essays combine to provide a perspective on a selection of topics. The areas covered include: the iconography of the Virgin Mary in Anglo-Saxon sculpture and manuscript illumination; narrative technique in the Bayeux Tapestry; the representation of perspective in the Bayeux Tapestry; English Romanesque stone sculpture and stained glass; 12th-century changes in dress fashion; late-12th-century aesthetics as reflected in descriptions of earlier artefacts; programmatic unity in the decoration of the late-medieval church; Islamic influence on frescoes by the brothers Salimbeni; and the role of nationalism in shaping approaches to medieval art. The book also provides an assessment of C.R. Dodwell's achievement in restoring Lambeth Palace Library during the 1950s.
