Art of the Middle Ages

Art of the Middle Ages
In this course we will survey European art and architecture from the fall of Rome to the late 13th century. Among the topics to be discussed are Irish monasticism and its art forms; Romanesque art and architecture; and the great Gothic cathedrals of Chartres, Bourges, Paris, Reims, and Amiens. In addition to examining the structural principles of Romanesque and Gothic architecture, we will discuss the development of medieval sculpture and iconography. Other topics to be considered are the design of stained glass windows, illuminated manuscripts, and late medieval tapestries. 3 hr. lect.
