Gothic Art

5th Century to 16th Century A.D.

Gothic Art is the style of art produced in Europe from the middle ages up to the beginning of the Renaissance. Typically religious in nature, it is especially known for the distinctive arched design of its churches, its stained glass, and its illuminated manuscripts.

In the late 14, anticipating the Renaissance, Gothic Art evolved towards a more secular style known as International Gothic. One of the best – known artists of this period is Simone Martini .

Although superseded by Renaissance art, there was a Gothic Revival in the 18 th and 19 th centuries, which was largely rooted in nostalgia.
