9781872501796: Ottonian Book Illumination: An Historical Study (Studies in Medieval and Early Renaissance Art History)

A new single volume edition of Mayr-Harting's seminal study, that looks at the origins, motivations and impact of a unique phase of German art within its historical context. The first part examines the major illuminated manuscripts which reflect religious thought, ritual and devotional attitudes and exemplify artistic expression of the time. The second studies the culture of the Ottonian court and especially the Emperor Otto III, through the manuscripts, and considers patronage and artistic centres of the period. 'The most comprehensive and important study on Ottonian Illumination to appear in English' - Early Medieval Europe .

Book Description Brepols N.V., Belgium, 1999. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. The seminal work, originally published in two seperate clothbound volumes, is now made available in a revised one-volume edition, both in hardback and in paperback. It brings to light an aesthic passage of European history which has never before received full-scale treatment in English. It explains, historically and with a rich body of illustrations, the origins and momentum of a magnificent movement of German art, and shows, through this powerful and expressive art, how religion and political ideaology were interwined in Ottonian culture from about 950 to 1050. Besides dealing with the great imperials books such as the Gospels of Otto III and the Pericopes Book of Henry II, as well as other splendid liturgical manuscripts, the author also writes with penetrating insight about the great art-loving bishops such as Egbert of Trier and Bernard of Hildesheim, whose aims ans personalitites are express in the books they commissioned. In addition, the most important art centres of the Ottonian Empire - Reichenau, Cologne, Fulda and Corvey - are discussed in detail. Bookseller Inventory # AAJ9781872501796
