History of Art - Antiquity and Innovation in Early Medieval Art



Early Medieval Art The reign of King, later Emperor, Charlemagne (768–814) marked a flourishing of the visual arts that had not been seen since the fall of the Roman Empire. Often styled the ‘Carolingian Renaissance’, the artistic culture of the period was characterised by a politicallymotivated evocation of the classical past, fused with elements of existing art styles and innovation in areas such as monastic planning and the commission of new types of fine metalwork and illuminated manuscript.
