Transcript of Middle Ages Art

Middle Ages Art Byzantine Art Byzantine art was used in the early time period of the middle ages and was very religious. Christians were being persecuted by the Roman Empire. So, they hid in the catacombs of Rome and painted pictures on the ground, which were used as messages to other Christians. They made frescoes, mosaics, and illuminated manuscripts.
The Christians painted symbols for everything. They had symbols like peacocks, grapevines, fishes, and more. They did not make sculptures or use shadows in their
artwork, everything was one-dimensional. Romanesque Art Romanesque Art was also an early part of the middle ages. Romanesque Art was called that because the Roman people inspired it. The art work usually portrays a bible story, so it was also a religious type of art. Gothic Art Gothic Art was later in the middle ages and was much more popular than Romanesque and Byzantine Art. Everyone loved Gothic Art because it had more brighter and vibrant colors. The artists didn't really use much color. They used metal and ivory for their artwork, which is much more expensive than regular paintings. The art got more realistic by using shadows and light. Also they used symmetry, naturalism, animals, and mythological creatures.
