Monuments of Romanesque Art: The Art of the Church Treasures in Northwestern Europe
by Hanns Swarzenski
University of Chicago Press, 1967
Cloth: 978-0-226-78605-6 | Paper: 978-0-226-78606-3

This beautiflly illustrated book presents as an artistic whole the chief monuments in ivory, gold, bronze, enamel, and manuscript illumination of north-west Europe from A.D. 800 to 1200. Hanns Swarzenski has selected more than 560 illustrations to exemplify the continuity of artistic development irrespective of the materials in which individual works are executed or the local schools to which they belong. These illustrations offer a splendid presentation of Romanesque art—the most extensive ever brought together between the covers of one book.
