9781904832966: The Medieval World: The Walters Art Museum

The Medieval World: The Walters Art Museum presents some of the most important aspects of medieval art, through the examination of nearly 150 stunning objects from the Walters Art Museum, one of the richest collections of medieval art in the United States. It features superb examples of sculpture and carvings, metal and enamel work, stained glass, jewellery and illuminated manuscripts, ranging in date from the Romanesque and early Byzantine period to the late Gothic and early Renaissance period.

Divided into subjects such as the classical tradition and artistic process in the Middle Ages, the church as a heavenly space, saints, relics and devotion, and earthly possessions, each chapter is generously illustrated with artworks, special feature boxes, and details, which provide a fuller understanding of both the formal qualities and social context of medieval art.

A wonderfully written and illustrated introduction to the subject of medieval art and society, The Medieval World also features an extensive checklist, bibliography and index.

Review:

“Bursting with large, high-quality color photos, it is so satisfying to hold and peruse that even this reviewer’s incurably digital ten-year-old picked it up for a good half-hour browse. In its visual appeal, its accessible essays, and its broad ranging subject matter, this book will prove attractive to readers already interested in medieval culture generally as well as to those concerned with the Walters Art Museum as an institution. It also bids fair to attract its share of converts to medievalism” Pamela A. Patton, The Medieval Review

“A finely illustrated general guide written in a narrative style giving just enough context for the reader to understand and appreciate the works of art before him. For the more knowledgeable reader, an annotated checklist gives full entries for each item (including provenance) and bibliographic listings for further study” Eleanor Robbins, Cassone
