Early Medieval Art


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Beginning with the coronation of Charlemagne as Emperor of the West in A.D. 800, John Beckwith guides us through the architecture, painting, sculpture, illuminations and ivories of the three great periods of early medieval art. The Ottonian period, perhaps best known for the great center of art and craftsmanship attached to the court, presented an artistic style which had developed from early Christian and Carolingian sources--a style which was the gateway to the great artistic revival in the eleventh and twelfth centuries--the Romanesque period.

Cosmos And Community In Early Medieval Art


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

In the rapidly changing world of the early Middle Ages, depictions of the cosmos represented a consistent point of reference across the three dominant states--the Frankish, Byzantine, and Islamic Empires. As these empires diverged from their Greco-Roman roots between 700 and 1000 A.D. and established distinctive medieval artistic traditions, cosmic imagery created a web of visual continuity, though local meanings of these images varied greatly. Benjamin Anderson uses thrones, tables, mantles, frescoes, and manuscripts to show how cosmological motifs informed relationships between individuals, especially the ruling elite, and communities, demonstrating how domestic and global politics informed the production and reception of these depictions. The first book to consider such imagery across the dramatically diverse cultures of Western Europe, Byzantium, and the Islamic Middle East, Cosmos and Community in Early Medieval Art illuminates the distinctions between the cosmological art of these three cultural spheres, and reasserts the centrality of astronomical imagery to the study of art history.

Animals In Early Medieval Art


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

"The depiction and symbolism of animals have always fascinated us. This book illustrates their crucial importance in medieval art from the sixth to the eleventh centuries, and describes their use in sculpture, manuscripts, embroidery and metalwork. It shows how the underlying Celtic and Germanic traditions combined with Mediterranean influences to produce a far stronger animal art in Britain than anywhere else in Europe. Here, pagan imagery and symbolism were transmuted into Christian art and teaching, and by studying animal subjects in the whole of the British Isles rather than one region in particular, the artistic links between the Picts, Anglo-Saxons and Irish gradually emerge. Placing the emphasis on the naturalist tradition as well as the characteristic interlacing forms, Animals In Early Medieval Art uncovers the origins of the fantastic beasts of the bestiary, and draws conclusions about the transmission of motifs and ideas in general."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
