9780521410175: Romanesque Architectural Criticism

This history of Romanesque architectural criticism examines seventeenth through early nineteenth-century commentary on medieval architecture and the naming of the Romanesque style. From the time of Giorgio Vasari's Vite (1550) through circa 1818, the portmanteau Gothic often served as a blanket and dismissive term encompassing any non-classical architecture from the disappearance to the revival of the classical style in Renaissance Italy. A study of Romanesque criticism reveals the various stages in the understanding and naming of Romanesque architecture. This consolidation of literature on Romanesque architecture seeks to break ground and to prompt others to refine its conclusions.

Review:

This history of Romanesque architectural criticism is the first to examine early seventeenth through early nineteenth century commentary on medieval architecture and the naming of the Romanesque style. It is difficult for the twentieth-century student of architecture to imagine a time when medieval styles were not distinguished from one another. However, from the time of Giorgio Vasari's Vite (1550) through circa 1818, the portmanteau "Gothic" often served as a blanket and dismissive term encompassing any non-classical architecture from the disappearance to the revival of the classical style in Renaissance Italy. A study of Romanesque criticism reveals the various stages in the understanding and naming of Romanesque architecture. This consolidation of literature on Romanesque architecture seeks to break new ground and to prompt others to refine its conclusion. -- Book Description
