9780853319955: Crusader Art: The Art of the Crusaders in the Holy Land, 1099-1291

The Crusades began as expeditions called by the Pope to regain the Holy Land and liberate oppressed Christians living there. One of the least known aspects of the Crusades is the art that was commissioned by Crusaders in the Holy Land from the time they took Jerusalem in July 1099 to their defeat by the Mamluks in 1291. This book focuses on the full range of Crusader painting (manuscript illumination, frescos, mosaics, and icon painting) to tell the fascinating story of the development of Crusader art. Jaroslav Folda, a leading expert in the field, identifies Crusader art as a remarkable Near Eastern phenomenon made by Crusader artists resident and trained in the East. Explaining the major artistic trends that emerged from the Greek East and the Latin West, the author suggests that Crusader art played a significant role in transmitting the Byzantinizing tradition of the maniera greca to Italy and Europe up until the end of the 13th century.This assertion leads to the important conclusion that Crusader art had an influence on artistic developments leading up to the early stages of the Italian Renaissance. "Crusader Art" is the first book to illustrate a wide range of important works of Crusader art in color, including surviving architectural examples, works of sculpture, mosaics, frescoes,manuscripts, icons, ivory carvings, metalwork, and coins. It will be essential reading for scholars, students, travelers to the Near East, and enthusiasts alike.

About the Author:

Jaroslav Folda is N. Ferebee Taylor Professor in the History of Art at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is the international leader in the growing field of studies of the art of the Crusades.

Review:

'First class. .. Crusader Art has been receiving more attention in recent years, but Jaroslav Folda is definitely the international leader in the field. I think all libraries will want to buy this, not least because it contains a stunning new idea: that crusader art had an influence on the early stages of the Renaissance. Folda is very well known ideed ... Art history is a subject of growing importance to historians of the Latin East. I think historians will flock to buy this book.' --Jonathan Riley-Smith, Dixie Professor of Ecclesiastical History Emeritus, Emmanuel College Cambridge

Folda is the authority on Crusader art. This celebration of the visual traditions to which he has dedicated his career is designed for a more general readership. While the academic reader will not find new or detailed information about the art of the crusades, even specialist scholars will be particularly interested in this vivid, succinct, and integrated narrative of Crusader art and its development. --Cecily Hilsdale, Department of Art History and Communication Studies, McGill University
