Gothic: Art for England 1400-1547

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The 15th and 16th centuries were a time of great artistic and architectural achievement in England reflected in such buildings as St. George's Chapel in Windsor and Henry VIII's palace at Hampton Court. This large, well-illustrated book which accompanies a major new exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, discusses and describes the wealth and prosperity of England at this time through some of the major artworks of the late medieval period. Eleven essays explore aspects of politics, war and public life, religion, patronage, production and craftmanship, music, kingship and queenship, followed by a thematic catalogue that takes both artefacts from the exhibition and more besides accompanied by short introductions on subjects such as images of royalty, royal books, arts of combat, urban landscape, merchants, dress and adornment, private devotion, pilgrimage and the art of death. This is a stunning book that celebrates the diversity of the period in artistic terms, its insular and international outlook, conservatism mixed with experimentation, encompassing 'the good, the bad and the downright ugly'.
