I was looking through my medieval art folder and I realized that I actually have a pretty scant amount of art from the Middle Ages besides the Codex Manesse. So, art thread of stuff actually painted/drawn/engraved from the Middle Ages anyone?

Fuck you.

But really, that's a sweeping generalization for 1000 years of art. The emphasis for much of that time is on meaning and the mental connections art evokes, not some Classical mimesis nonsense.

If you can't separate beauty from realizm, try some late medieval sculpture. Rheims has some lovely works.

Right, it's there just for novelty, not because some Americans had the sense to preserve medieval history rather than paint over it or cut it up, like many other manuscripts.

Also, here's a dick pic from the same Heures for fun. Bottom left corner.

The point of art is different then. With the Renaissance, the more classical point of art returned. But the Orthodox Church still employs Medieval style art because their art doesn't have the same point as modernist art.

Hobble over here with your crutches;
Your things will succeed now.
The living [people] don't like you;
Death will show you special mercy.

No one at all is a friend,
but Death will be his friend.

The only reason Germany was kicked out of France so fast was that D-day was a great success supposedly by accident.

Can anyone more versed in art history answer a question for me? This piece in particular, depicting Ulrich von Lichtenstein and his head. I'm much more of an arms and armor guy, and I know that extremely elaborate head crests existed for tournament and parade wear made from basically paper mache and wood. My first instinct is that this woman is one such crest, possibly exaggerated. However, recently one of my professors claimed that this is actually symbolic and that it represents that the love of a lady was what he is thinking of. She's literally on his mind. I love this professor because she's basically an old German grandmother, but she's also blatantly wrong about a lot of medieval stuff because her focus is on the unification of Germany onward, she's getting pretty up there in years, and I think a lot of her medieval education comes from an overly romanticized classroom from the 1930's in Germany. Is she correct here, or am I right in taking a more literal interpretation?

It was a disguise. "A reference to the main narrative of the Frauendienst in which the poet, diguised as Venus, emerges from the sea at Venice to undertake a knightly expedetion." According to Michael Camille, anyway.

God bless those germanic grandmother professors. I've had a few, but they're always so damn unreliable.
>>
>>69733
Have you looked up the history of Ulrich von Liechtenstein? I'm not an expert, so you might want to look more deeply into it, but Ulrich wrote an autobiographic (to which extent this is true to life is obviously rather questionable) work called "Frauendienst" where he dressed up as Lady Venus (likely depicted with a love arrow here) and challenged other knights in a tournament wearing drag.

Given the iconic and abstract nature of these depictions it is likely that depicting him wearing actual drag would have been rather confusing, so he's depicted wearing the insignia which gives him away as a tournament knight, but the artist put this particularly elaborate crest on top to remind people that he would actually have looked kinda like that.
