"The art of the Byzantine civilization was not concerned with re-creating the concrete image of living forms, but sought rather to penetrate the infinite. Byzantine masters conveyed holiness by their spiritualized attitude and by their interpretation of the inner being as well as through these outer symbols. That Byzantine art was not concerned with the visible world but with a spiritual and visionary one accounts for its strong emotional appeal. the spirit of Classical and pre-Classical Antiquity and the iconography of Early Christian art of the Near Easr, as well as traces of the earlier style of these countries are all incorporated within this art. And through this synthesis a new sstyle emerged." from the Foreword. Publisher's Original Mylar Jacket with black lettering and Abrams Icon. Inked name on ffep.
