Medieval Art: Recent Perspectives
Commemorates the art historian C.R. Dodwell with a collection of essays by leading scholars. Variously reporting new discoveries, reinterpreting major artefacts and contributing to current theoretical debate, the essays combine to provide a perspective on a selection of topics. The areas covered include: the iconography of the Virgin Mary in Anglo-Saxon sculpture and manuscript illumination; narrative technique in the Bayeux Tapestry; the representation of perspective in the Bayeux Tapestry; English Romanesque stone sculpture and stained glass; 12th-century changes in dress fashion; late-12th-century aesthetics as reflected in descriptions of earlier artefacts; programmatic unity in the decoration of the late-medieval church; Islamic influence on frescoes by the brothers Salimbeni; and the role of nationalism in shaping approaches to medieval art. The book also provides an assessment of C.R. Dodwell's achievement in restoring Lambeth Palace Library during the 1950s.
