Description
[an Art History for Scribes class] The manuscript art of the Early Medieval Britons was truly that of a culture formed by migration, assimilation, and synthesis. In this class we'll begin to explore the regional differences across the island; trace its gradual evolution as local styles were influenced by and combined with art from across the Channel and beyond; and delve into how—and why—these manuscripts build a stylistic bridge between the Late Iron Age and the Medieval British world. By the end, I hope you'll have a finer understanding of Anglo Saxon manuscript art, as well as the cultural mergers the period represents, so that when it comes time to create an Early Medieval British scroll...you'll be ready. This class will not be recorded.
