Early Christian and Byzantine Art by Dr. John Lowden

Book Description

John Lowden provides an authoritative account of early Christian and Byzantine art from the third century AD to the fall of Constantinople in 1453. From the grandest public buildings to the smallest personal items, it was - and still is - an art of extraordinary directness, but also of mystery and transcendence. Lowden explains how and why early Christian and Byzantine art was made and used, and situates it within the controversies of its time.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Phaidon really took the bit between its teeth with this vast series. All the classic areas, movements and individuals are covered in a series of some 130 titles. Early Christian and Byzantine Art by John Lowden, as are the other series titles, is a comprehensive overview of its subject. Attractively designed and well- written, it provides an introduction to 1000 years of art. (Kirkus UK)
