Gothic Spirit

Medieval Art from Europe

This publication brings together nearly thirty masterpieces made across western Europe between the twelfth and sixteenth centuries, a period spanning the Middle Ages and Renaissance. They represent some of the finest examples of sculpture, metalwork, painting, and stained glass from the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and are among the finest Medieval works of art to be found in private hands. In Gothic Spirit, the artworks are presented in a contemporary context for the first time, and together they offer startling insight into the medieval period’s rich artistic achievements.

"Through its design, organization, and clear yet detailed descriptions of the twenty-seven pieces it showcases, Gothic Spirit not only replicates the contemplative environment of the gallery exhibit it originally accompanied but also provides historical and artistic insights that will appeal to novice and experienced medievalists alike. . . . Although originally published to accompany the exhibit of the same name, Gothic Spirit: Medieval Art from Europe stands alone as an enjoyable, informative book that guides the reader on a journey from art viewer to reader, with Jada Gajdošová and Matthew Reeves’s clear yet detailed descriptions opening up exponentially for further research and learning."
