Sample text

Bruegel and Bosch, for example, are moralists. But their moralizing goes along with a high formalism. Both of these painters are astounding organizers and colourists, as well as amazingly convincing observers of objective forms (of nature) and inspired concoctors of fantasy forms. In the case of other Old Masters sometimes the moral is there but we’re not convinced the artist really means it – as often happens with Titian and Tintoretto. Here the moral story is a framework for something else that the artist feels more urgently.

But when the Roman Empire split in two in AD 395 and was dissolved in AD 476, the advancements of its arts were lost throughout Europe. Invading tribes destroyed what they could, and the civilization that created and appreciated the incredible statues and paintings of the period simply fell apart. To a small extent perspective, shading and other particularly Greco-Roman advances were held onto in some religious manuscripts of the new Latin and Greek Churches. The religious constraints on imagery in the Greek church meant that Byzantine art never came out of this phase of atrophy.

Calligraphy and interlacing designs, or arabesques, were painted instead. This skill at pattern-making shows itself in the Islamic art of Persia and later in the Indian Mughal dynasty. During this vast period Egyptian culture collapsed. China’s institutionalized traditions continued developing but stylistically they found a form that they kept to for 2,000 years. The world of Islam focused less on painting than on mathematics and calligraphy, while the South American, Indian and South East Asian cultures left no significant painted artifacts amongst their breathtaking temples.
