This book focuses on the full range of Crusader painting (including manuscript illumination, frescos, mosaics, and icon painting) to tell the fascinating story of the development of Crusader art. Jaroslav Folda, a leading expert in the field, identifies Crusader art as a remarkable Near Eastern phenomenon made by Crusader artists resident and trained in the East. Explaining the major artistic trends that emerged from the Greek East and the Latin West, the author suggests that Crusader art played a significant role in transmitting the Byzantinizing tradition of the maniera greca to Italy and Europe up until the end of the 13th century. This assertion leads to the important conclusion that Crusader art influenced artistic developments leading up to the early stages of the Italian Renaissance.
Crusader Art is the first book to illustrate a wide range of important works of Crusader art in color, including surviving architectural examples, works of sculpture, mosaics, frescos, manuscripts, icons, ivory carvings, metalwork, and coins. It will be essential reading for scholars, students, travelers to the Near East and enthusiasts alike.
