Light on the early-European pictorial art, but very nicely heavy on the cathedral architecture modeling (Romanesque through the evolution of Gothic style).

Bottom line: excellent for stylistic art of the architecture in central Europe (France, Germany, Bohemia, Italy), lacking on the early murals and tapestry.
