Meyer Schapiro's writings on Romanesque art are important documents, not only for the interpretation of that particular period but also for more general understanding of the evolution of Western art. He was also one of the first art historians to address the subject seriously, and his views remain influential. This book brings together some of Professor Shapiro's most renowned papers: on the aesthectic attitude in Romanesque art; on Mozarabic and Romanesque styles in manuscript paintings and stone sculptures from the Castilian abbey of Silos; on the cloister and portal sculptures in the French monastery of Moissac - a classic study long out of print; on the sculptures of Souillac; Romanesque geometrical schematism; the beginnings of Romanesque sculpture in Southern France; and the church facade of Saint Gilles in Provence. The author approaches artistic structures with the same objectivity as he does documents and archaeological data, and applies evidence from literature, religious texts, folklore, social and political history in reconstructing and interpreting the content of the works of art.
