Romanesque Art


The first style to be identified within Medieval Art. While it initially referred to the architectural style developed between the 11th and mid-12th centuries in Western Europe, Romanesque has recently been extended to include other areas of artistic production, including sculpture and painting. Major characteristics of Romanesque art exist in churches or monasteries and include vaulted ceilings and rounded or pointed arches. Romanesque sculptural decoration comes in the form of figurative capitals atop dense columns or in bronze reliefs carved into doors and tympanums over entryways.
