From antiquity to late Medieval art

This course explores the art of the centuries from c.500BC to c.1400AD, as a way to probe the aesthetic and cultural conditions that laid the foundations of Western European art. Antiquity, Byzantine, Migration Period, Early Medieval and Late Medieval, including Romanesque and Gothic, are the themes of this course, and each lecture dedicates some time to how later times have engaged with the artistic standards of these earlier periods.
