Medieval Art

Medieval art is a huge category in the history of creative interpretation that lasted for over a thousand years. This art was largely religious in nature and was developed before the Renaissance, which saw a rise in the variety of techniques and subjects that art depicted. The popularity of medieval art was largely due to the sponsorship of the Roman Catholic church who would commission artists around the world for works to decorate their cathedrals and illustrate stories of the Bible for the, then illiterate, masses. Although other artwork was commission by wealthy individuals, featuring more worldly subjects, the majority of this work was destroyed throughout time, leaving the modern world with predominantly religious artworks from this time period.

In the samples that have survived the tumultuous Middle Ages, researchers have discovered that medieval art was generally created with a specific purpose in mind, usually for the purposes of teaching. Medieval styles were largely unconcerned with realism and instead used the iconography method that was employed by the early Christian church to depict scenes from the Bible and from life.

Although the Renaissance brought about completely different ideas of what art was and what it was to be used for than medieval art, the two categories are frequently grouped together. However, the Renaissance was largely concerned with depicting objects as they really were which was in direct contrast with medieval techniques. However, it can be argued that without the popularity of medieval artwork throughout Europe, art as it's known today wouldn't exist and the Renaissance would have never happened.

Contemporary artists still produce medieval artwork, although it has little in common with the traditional definition of this category. Instead, modern artists depict the mythology and growing culture of that time period. Arthurian legends, in particular, are of interest to modern artists, as are depictions of knights, festivals, nobles, and other elements of the time.

For collectors and enthusiasts however, medieval art was the turning point of mankind and both modern and traditional depictions of this period are popular.

Medieval art is art that originates from the west. It covers a thousand years of art in Europe with traces of Middle East and African times. It mostly centers genres and times for example the early Christian art, Gothic art, Romanesque art, migration period art, byzantine art, and insular art. Medieval art was in the form of stained glass, illuminated manuscripts, sculpture, metalwork and mosaics. This kind of art emancipated from the Roman Empire traditions and also traditions from the early church. Art pieces in this category are deep and amazingly emotional. 'Mary Magdalene tells the disciples' is one of the early churches themed art pieces under the medieval art category.

The art piece will almost transport you to the early times of the Christian church. Medieval art is intricately designed and therefore it will be able to evoke a lot of emotions which stir up your soul. There is a wide variety to choose from in this category with such a wide range of themes to choose from. If you love gothic art, this would be a really suitable category for you.

Medieval art would draw attention to any wall it is placed on. This kind of art would be a great piece for your art collection. You could put it up in your living room area or even your bedroom to make the space look more appealing and also to enhance your home decor as well. This would also be a good piece to have in your art school since it represents an art legacy.
