Synopsis : Between the ninth and the 13th centuries the Western world witnessed a flowering of the pictorial arts. In this book the author provides a guide to all forms of this art - from wall and panel paintings to stained glass windows, mosaics and embroidery - and sets them against the historical and theological influences of the age. Dodwell describes the rise and development of some of the great styles of the Middle Ages: Carolingian art, which ranged from illuminations to drawings; Anglo-Saxon art; Ottonian art; the Mozarabic art of Spain; and the art of Italy influenced by the styles of Byzantium and the West. Dodwell concludes with an examination of the universal Romanesque style of the 12th century that extended from the Scandinavian countries to Jerusalem. His book also includes a discussion of the painters and craftsmen of the time and incorporates the latest research.
