    Castle studies have been shaped and defined over the past half-century by the work of R. Allen Brown. His classic English Castles, renamed here to acknowledge its definitive approach to the subject, is still the foundation study of the English, and Welsh, castles built between the Norman Conquest and the mid 1500s. As the subject has evolved, so too has this book, which, with its numerous photographs and plans, remains the guide to the origins, purpose and identity of the great castles of England and Wales.

  • Arnolfini Betrothal: Medieval Marriage and the Enigma of Van Eyck's Double Portrait

    Commonly known as the "Arnolfi Wedding" or "Giovanni Arnolfi and His Bride," Jan van Eyck's double portrait in the National Gallery, London, painted in 1434, is probably the most widely recognized panel painting of the fifteenth century. One of the great masterpieces of early Flemish art, this enigmatic picture has also aroused intense speculation as to its precise meaning. Erwin Panofsky's view that the painting represents a clandestine marriage was almost universally accepted until recently, when scholars began to abandon his principle of "disguised symbolism" in favor of more theoretical approaches to the panel's interpretation. Edwin Hall's study - firmly grounded in Roman and canon law, theology, literature, and the social history of the period - reveals new meaning for this wonderful painting: instead of depicting the sacrament of marriage, Hall argues, Van Eyck's double portrait commemorates the alliance between two wealthy and important Italian mercantile families, a ceremonious betrothal that reflects the social conventions of the time. Hall's illuminating book not only unlocks the mystery surrounding the content of this work of art; it also makes a unique contribution to the fascinating history of betrothal and marriage custom, ritual, and ceremony, tracing their evolution from the late Roman Empire thorough the fifteenth century and providing persuasive visual evidence for their development.Since the fifteenth century, Jan van Eyck has been one of the most admired artists in the history of early northern painting. His pictures are jewels in themselves, crafted in luminous colors on wooden panels with a newly perfected oil technique, achieved by the application of transparent glazes over more opaque underlayers of pigment, permitting each detail to be rendered with astonishing verisimilitude. The Arnolfini double portrait is Van Eyck's quintessential work and a striking example of how art and its meaning endure and engage us for centuries.

    In this beautifully written book, Georges Duby, one of France'sgreatest medieval historians, returns to one of the central themesof his work - the relationship between art and society. He tracesthe evolution of artistic forms from the fifth to the fifteenthcentury in parallel with the structural development of society, inorder to create a better understanding of both.Duby traces shifts in the centres of artistic production andchanges in the nature and status of those who promoted works of artand those who produced them. At the same time, he emphasizes thecrucial continuities that still gave the art of medieval Europe abasic unity, despite the emergence of national characteristics.Duby also reminds us that the way we approach these artistic formstoday differs greatly from how they were first viewed. For us, theyare works of art from which we expect and derive aestheticpleasure; but for those who commissioned them or made them, theirvalue was primarily functional - gifts offered to God, communications with the other world, or affirmations of power - andthis remained the case throughout the Middle Ages.This book will be of interest to students and academics inmedieval history and history of art.
