Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The prevailing view of Byzantine authors is that their art was highly true to nature. A perusal of the texts collected here will confirm this statement...To us, such views appear rather perplexing, for we regard Byzantine art as being abstract rather than naturalistic, and we expect to find in the written sources some reflection of our judgment.

Synopsis:
