Gothic and Gothic Art

Gothic Art was a style of painting in medieval art, architecture, and sculpture that developed in Northern France out of Romanesque art in the 12th century AD, led by the concurrent development of Gothic architecture. It spread to all of Western Europe, mainly France and England, and in the late 14th century, the sophisticated court style of International Gothic developed, which continued to evolve until the late 15th century, and the later Middle Ages. In many areas, especially Germany, late Gothic Art continued well into the 16th century, before being subsumed into Renaissance art. Primary media in the Gothic period included panel painting, stained glass, illuminated manuscripts, sculpture and fresco.
