Gothic Sculpture

gothic-sculpture-516982

The Gothic period of Western art extends from the late 12th century to the early 15th century through Christian Western Europe. The sculpture corresponding to this period evolved from the Romanesque and later dissolved into Renaissance sculpture. Although the Gothic succeeds the Romanesque, there was an abrupt change in the conception of the forms that seek greater formal beauty. This sculpture was closely linked to architecture, serving as decoration for the great cathedrals and other religious buildings, although it gradually acquired greater autonomy. This style is characterized by being austere and stylized, giving rise to elongated figures whose purpose was to convey spirituality. Over time, naturalism was gaining presence and the works became more realistic and humane. From Artmonite we want to make this sculpture accessible by publishing 3D printing models on our page at reasonable prices.
