About Romanesque art
Romanesque art prevailed in the 11th, 12th, and 13th centuries. Despite its name, “Romanesque” refers to post-Roman art and architecture created during the medieval period. After the fall of Rome, many feature of Roman art and architecture were preserved and elaborated on, including arches, decorated columns, and the use of the acanthus. Despite the Renaissance narrative of the Dark Ages, Europe was growing in wealth and artistic sophistication during the 11th, 12th, and 13th centuries, becoming more accomplished in metalworking and the sculpting of enamel, as well as goldsmithing. Byzantine themes and decorations were widespread in the building of palaces and especially churches, the latter of which became one of the centers for Romanesque art. Biblical stories and subjects were most common in Romanesque art, especially the Last Judgment and the Madonna, or Virgin Mary. Illuminated manuscripts also exhibit traits of Romanesque art, including curling leaves and two-dimensional representations of human figures and scenes. Bibles in particular became some of the best examples of Romanesque style, combining Christian imagery with distinct forms of decoration. Much of Romanesque during the medieval period was meant to be didactic, or instructive: depictions of Biblical lessons and the Seven Deadly Sins served as reminders for laypeople to obey the Bible and the teachings of Jesus Christ.
