REVEALING THE ROMANESQUE
The study day will look at the architecture, sculpture and minor arts of the Romanesque. It will compare Roman monuments with those of the late 11th and early 12th centuries, with particular reference to the churches of the Santiago de Compostela route. Roman sculpture will also be compared with religious sculpture of the later period, which was used to bring biblical messages to life. Finally the Bayeux Tapestry will be examined and its influence on painting, manuscripts, jewellery and ivory carvings.
