Wall mosaics after 850CE
Byzantine Art after Iconoclasm changed in many ways, but not in its taste for beautiful decorations of the walls and apses of its churches. The decorations that were created in this period attracted attention not just in the Byzantine Empire, but further afield in Europe and the decorations of the churches of Palermo and Venice attest to the influence and the distance artists were prepared to travel.
This dayschool will explore some of the surviving art from the period and discuss where the money for this very expensive form of decoration came from and how wider politics influenced what was possible in art.
Dayschool: Saturday, 16 December 2023 Time: 11.00–16.00 GMT
