9780300053487: The Pictorial Arts of the West, 800-1200 (The Yale University Press Pelican History of Art Series)

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.

About the Author:

C.R. Dodwell was formerly professor of the history of art at Manchester University and is the author of numerous books on early medieval art.

From Library Journal:

A nearly complete new work replacing the author's Painting in Europe 800-1200 (Pelican, 1971), this volume augurs well for the Pelican series now directed by Yale University Press. Dodwell adds embroidery, stained glass, and mosaic to his earlier survey of manuscript painting and enlarges the coverage to include Irish, Anglo-Saxon, and English Romanesque work. Although the bibliography stops in the late 1980s, this is a strong survey of the period, with incomparably better plates than the original series. Highly recommended for all art collections; pay close attention to this revivified series.
- Jack Perry Brown, Art Inst. of Chicago Lib.
