Bridaham, Lester Burbank

Pap. Mineola, 2005

Book ID: 76068

Dispelling the conventional wisdom that French Gothic architectural flourishes were born of despair or gloom, Bridaham reveals the whimsical nature of these creations and the ingenious artisans who made them. An eye-opening look at some of the rare instances of public satire and unbridled artistic freedom in the Middle Ages.
