Die Skulptur Des Mittelalters in Italien: Romanik 1100-1240 (Hardcover)
The first fifty pages of this large volume are taken up with an introduction to the development of Romanesque-style sculpture in Italy, and its uses, themes and stylistic features. Thereafter, the book is devoted to innumerable photographs of examples of the sculpture, demonstrating the imaginative qualities, subject-matter and architectural context of a style of art which is too often overlooked in the cultural glare of the Renaissance.
