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.

Romanesque art refers to the art of Europe from approximately 1000 AD to the rise of the Gothic style in the 13th century, or later, depending on region. The preceding period is increasingly known as the Pre-Romanesque. The term was invented by 19th century art historians, especially for Romanesque architecture, which retained many basic features of Roman architectural style - most notably round-headed arches, but also barrel vaults, apses, and acanthus-leaf decoration - but had also developed many very different characteristics. In Southern France, Spain and Italy there was an architectural continuity with the Late Antique, but the Romanesque style was the first style to spread across the whole of Catholic Europe, from Denmark to Sicily. Romanesque art was also greatly influenced by Byzantine art, especially in painting, and by the anti-classical energy of the decoration of the Insular art of the British Isles, and from these elements forged a highly innovative and coherent style. Meyer Schapiro is University Professor Emeritus at Columbia University, New York and is one of the world's leading authorities on the Romanesque period.
