The National Gallery London: Middle Ages
The Middle Ages are also often called the Dark Ages, thus described due to the supposed lack of literary and artistic culture and advancement. The paintings we show you in this selection, however, show an entirely different picture. Sparkling gold, rich colours and splendid settings reveal that artistic production was bright and radiant. The church was the dominant patron of artworks during the medieval period and therefore the majority of paintings are of religious subject matters. Realism fell behind and the glorification of God, Christ and the Saints was the main characteristic of the art at this time.
