Early Christian and Byzantine Art (Art & Ideas)
In the 320s AD the Emperor Constantine moved the capital of his Empire from Rome to Byzantium, which was renamed Constantinople, and until its fall in 1453 remained a major artistic centre. Under successive emperors and empresses for more than a thousand years, artists, architects and craftsmen produced superb and intriguing works ranging from the grandest public buildings to the smallest and most personal items. Today this art is generally termed early Christian and Byzantine. Working from the surviving material Early Christian and Byzantine Art explains how and why early Christian and Byzantine art was made and used. The reader is taken on a journey of discovery as the ideas this art sought to express are considered.
Early Christian and Byzantine Art was published to coincide with a major exhibition - The Glory of Byzantium - at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York; March - July 1997.
