Spring Study Series – Visual Arts in the 14th and 15th Centuries with David Evans

The ravages of time and the deliberate destruction wrought by iconoclasts during the Reformation mean that any survey of the visual arts in the 14th and 15th centuries can be only partial. Fortunately, enough does survive to compel our respect and admiration for the artistic output of the period. That output included public art in the form of stained glass, wall paintings and sculpture, mostly for churches. The social elite commissioned tapestries, illuminated manuscripts and funerary monuments.
