This publication is an inventory of large-scale sculpture in wood and stone, from sites scattered throughout Western Europe and executed roughly between the middle of the eleventh and the end of the twelfth century.

Summary

Included in this inventory is large-scale sculpture in wood and stone, from sites scattered throughout Western Europe and executed roughly between the middle of the eleventh and the end of the twelfth century. Elements from such well-known monuments as Saint-Lazare at Autun, Saint-Pierre at Cluny, Saint-Michel at Cuxa, and churches of Metz, Parthenay, Provins and Reims figure in this catalogue, as do pieces with less familiar provenances like Saint-Laurent l'Abbaye in Nivernais, Saint-Melaine at Preuilly-sur-Claise in Touraine, Saint-Evre at Toul, and Saint-Vincent near Digne in Provence. Each entry, including basic data, description and analysis, is illustrated by one or more photographs. A list of pieces presumed to be of doubtful authenticity concludes the volume, along with provenance and iconographic indexes.
