"Something of the Hellenic Spirit was reborn in the Eastern Roman Empire - later known as Byzantium - while the Western Empire crumbled under the blows of barbarian invaders. For a thousand years thereafter its great capital, Constantinople, remained the center of a brilliant, sophisticated society, and an art of magnificence and power. We have come to know Byzantine art chiefly in examples remote from the capital; until a short time ago, for example, the glowing gold-and-colored-glass mosaics of Santa Sophia were obscured by whitewash. This book now spreads before the reader the Byzantine art of Constantinople itself in its incomparable elegance and perfection, including the fascinating buildings, mosaics, murals, and sculptures, as well as smaller treasures that cannot be moved because of their fragility or sacredness. In the introduction the author, a distinguished authority, traces the development of Byzantine art with the penetration and sensitivity born of a lifetime of scholarship. In addition, he discusses at some length each of the illustrated objects and buildings. The photographs - many reproduced in full color - were made by Max Hirmer, who is noted for his ability to bring out the qualities present in works of art. These two great authorities, between them, have created an impressive and notable contribution to art literature."--

The birth of Western painting; a history of colour, form, and iconography, illustrated from the paintings of Mistra and Mount Athos, of Giotto and Duccio, and El Greco by Robert Byron( Book )

39 editions published between 1930 and 2013 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1930, this book deals with Byzantine art, not as an isolated province, but as one intimately connected with the subsequent history of European painting. After a summary of the whole question in its relation to modern art, the second chapter opens with a novel analysis of the iconoclast controversy, and shows how it was only by this movement that Hellenistic naturalism was finally vanquished and the seed of interpretational art planted in Europe in its stead. The third chapter reveals how this seed was nourished by the Constantinopolitan Renascence, and how that event, combined with the increasing humanisation of religious emotion, culminated, not only in Duccio and Giotto, but in the equally important work of their contemporaries at Mistra and Mount Athos. A detailed account of these works is given and in the last part of the book, the mystery of El Greco is finally resolved
