Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Informative, accessible, and imaginatively illustrated, Benton's new survey offers a lively exploration of the visual arts of the Middle Ages: its stained glass, mosaics, illuminated manuscripts, mural and panel paintings, ivories, metalwork, enamels, tapestries, sculpture, and, above all, its achievements in architecture.

Book News Annotation:

Benton (art history, Pace U., Pleasantville, NY) has written a thoughtful text suitable for introductory undergraduate courses in art history. The text proceeds chronologically, with attention throughout to themes that include use, production, patronage, politics, and religion. Unfortunately, as is common now for introductory texts, almost no ground plans are included with the many works of architecture described. A glossary and chronology are provided. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

A comprehensive and authoritative study of medieval visual arts in Europe, forming the ideal guide for students to all facets of art and architecture in the Middle Ages. Topics covered include tapestries, armour, stained glass, enamel and ivory work, and illuminated manuscripts.
