Read for a class on the art and architecture of the Gothic. I remember studying the photos carefully - for a test we had to identify churches/period of time they were built based on slides shown to us. Tricky test, but an excellent class that I really enjoyed. Which is why I still have the books some 20 years later.

Recommends it for: Art and art history students; lovers of art and art history
It's a bit dry in prose, but this is no surprise for an art history book. Nonetheless, it is an informative, and even an inspiring, read. And oh, it contains such pretty, pretty pictures of glorious Gothic paintings and architecture. Recommended for those who (obviously) are students of art history, people who love art history and, well, people who enjoy Gothic art in general.

Nice introduction, but mostly focused on Architecture, some beautiful examples of manuscripts and sculpture though.

I found some bits factually incorrect, so I put this book down after reading about 120 pages.

An excellent overview. It starts in France, and then considers influences on Italy.
