Robin Cormack: Byzantine Art (Oxford History of Art)

Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


Description

Editorial Reviews From Library Journal Because Byzantine art portrays a society in change, defining the period and its contributions is a big undertaking. The author of several books on iconography and Byzantine art, Cormack (history of art, Univ. of London; deputy director, Courtauld Inst. of Art) only partially meets the challenge of making his subject understandable. The book's organization lends to its accessibility; Cormack breaks down the era's political and social developments, revealing their complexity, and time lines and sidebars make the topic more approachable. The trade paperback size (standard for this series) means smaller illustrations, which is a shortcoming. But the list of Internet links to museums with Byzantine art collections will be very useful for students. Despite the book's strengths, Cormack is not writing for the beginner, and some of this material will be over the heads of most readers. A respectable but not necessary addition to public and academic libraries that need the subject coverage. Karen Ellis, Nicholson Memorial Lib. Syst., Garland, TX Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc. Review " The handbook of Byzantine art for both lay readers and specialists."--Annabel Wharton, Duke University "The reader is left with a powerful impression of how the Byzantines themselves must have looked upon the art that surrounded them."--David Buckton, The British Museum "Because Byzantine art portrays a society in change, defining the period is a big undertaking....The book's organization lends to its accessibility; Cormack breaks down the era's political and social developments, revealing their complexity, and time lines and sidebars make the topic more approachable....The list of Internet links to museums with Byzantine art collections will be very useful for students."-- Library Journal See all Editorial Reviews
