ARTV203 Medieval Art

The visual and cultural development of European art in the medieval period.

This paper looks at art produced in Western Europe from the emergence of Romanesque art in the eleventh century to the High Gothic period of the royal courts of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. It examines work in a variety of media such as manuscripts, mosaics, monumental sculpture and the architecture of the Gothic cathedral. We will study the varieties of Christian art produced at this time, considering the significance of pilgrimage and the cult of relics, contemporary ideas about art and the development of architectural forms. In addition, the emergence of secular art forms will also be discussed.
