Medieval Art

Veronica Sekules

Oxford History of Art

  • Challenges the distinctions between the Medieval and Renaissance periods, arguing that the Medieval period was steeped in classical learning, and that there was a very strong tradition in Italy for praise of the artist as an intellectual, which predates the Renaissance.
  • Disproves commonly held views of Medieval art being primarily about church art, and establishes the importance of art in all aspects of life in this period.
  • Brings issues of contemporary relevance to her investigation of this period - thereby enlivening it for a new generation of readers.
