Description
Though we generally imagine Romanesque art as ascetic, with naked stone interiors emphasizing the spiritual over the material, this concept is countered by 12th-century descriptions that convey a great enthusiasm for colors, illumination, splendor, and stirring visual effects in art. In the meantime, the treasures mentioned—gold and silver vessels, often encrusted with gems; radiant stained-glass windows; and sumptuously colored tapestries—have all disappeared from view. This beautifully illustrated catalogue explores some 100 examples of what has survived, including the Bayeux Tapestry, the "Golden Altar" of Lisbjerg, the mosaics of the Ascension Cupola in Venice's San Marco, and the Portico de la Gloria at Santiago de Compostela.
