Romanesque Art, Perspectives Series (Perspectives)

Romanesque Art, Perspectives Series (Perspectives) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Presents the Romanesque period, from 1050 to 1200 A.D., through an entirely new approach; including discussions of issues important to the period. The book emphasizes society, the role of women, patronage, and the development of institutions such as the monastery and the university. This approach serves to enliven a period in art and culture that had been previously burdened by reference as “the Dark Ages.” It also provides a social and political context for a discussion of the period and presents broader survey scope through references to Islam, Judaism, and other non-Christian cultures.

Book News Annotation:

The author, assistant curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and a professor at the Open University, examines medieval European art in the context of its relationship to the art of Byzantium and Islam, tracing the influences among these cultures through trade and the Crusades. Well illustrated, and a great bargain. The series is produced by Calmann and King, Ltd., London, and co- published in the US by Prentice-Hall and Abrams.
