About the Author:

Antony Eastmond read History at Oxford University, before coming to the Courtauld where he took his MA in Byzantine art and PhD in art in medieval Georgia. After two years as British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the Courtauld, in 1995 he moved to Warwick University as Research Fellow. In 2001 he was appointed Reader in the History of Art and Chair of Department at Warwick. He returned to the Courtauld as Reader in the History of Byzantine Art in 2004. He is author of numerous scholarly articles and `The Limits of Byzantine Art' in A Companion to Byzantium (2010).

Review:

"In Yeats' Sailing to Byzantium, forms of 'hammered gold and gold enamelling' are rich enough to 'keep a drowsy Emperor awake'. So is this sumptuous book... A definitive account of how Byzantine culture gloriously expressed immaterial values through material wealth."—FT

Book Description Phaidon, 2013. Condition: New. Spanning more than a millennium from the Roman Empire of Late Antiquity to the early Renaissance, Byzantine art shifted away from the naturalistic Roman style towards the more abstract images which we recognize as typical of religious icons. This splendid volume is arranged chronologically, displaying more than 260 items to illustrate the achievements of the Byzantine tradition not only in icon-painting but across a wide range of other artforms - coins, silverware, embroidery, manuscripts, mosaics, wall painting and church architecture.
