Hoy #20deEnero día de #SanSebastian patrón de #Sangüesa . Iglesia de San Salvador donde estaban los patronos San Roque y #SanSebastián . Desconocemos el año exacto en que Sangüesa comenzó a honrar a San Sebastián (protector contra la Peste), finales del sXV o a principios del sXVI, anterior a las dos grandes pestes que padeció #navarra en 1566 y 1599. El culto a San Sebastián adquirió durante los siglos siguientes el mayor esplendor. #photooftheday #románico #romanesque #nafarroa #navarra #caminodesantiago #stjamesway #hostaljp @turismonavarra @medievalworld
The drapery and overall of the extraordinary Christ triumphant on the cross of the mid 12th c from a church in Garrotxa. #omg #catalonia #barcelona #romanesque #crucifix
First stop in a rainy Barcelona has got to be the Museu de Catalunya to see the sublime and visionary frescoes from the late 11th through early 13th centuries. Among the ones I’ve included is the aggressive Stoning of Saint Stephen of c. 1100 from Val de Boi; the noble features of the apostle Taddeus from Sant Pere d’Ager, also c. 1100; the really hallucinatory vision of Isaiah with many eyed seraphim from Santa Maria d’Aneu (note the flaming wheels of Elijah’s chariot that bore him bodily to heaven); the apse frescoes from Burgal where, in the lower area, outside the precinct of the sacred, we see the woman who financed the fresco—Countess Llucia de Pallars, one hand raised, the other holding a taper (she died in 1090, providing a reference date for the decoration); and, of course, the celebrated masterpiece from Sant Climent de Taull of around 1123 showing Christ in stupendous majesty with the open book declaring him Lux Mundi —the light of the world. Oh yes: a detail of a charming 13th c altar frontal #barcelona #catalonia #frescoes #romanesque #visionary #apocalyptic #museudecatalunya
Maestranza pisana Capitel con procesión fúnebre Segunda mitad s.XII Mármol Procedencia desconocida Museo Nazionale di San Matteo PIsa, Italia 🏛🇮🇹🏛 La escultura medieval cumplía la función didáctica de transmitir el mensaje cristiano a los fieles que accedían al templo: “…la escultura servía para que los fieles tomasen contacto visual con las grandes verdades del cristianismo. Y, sin duda, aquella plástica, expresiva y majestuosa, a la vez, debía producir una impresión imborrable en la mente sencilla de aquellos hombre…” (“Historia del Arte” edt. Lafer. Tomo 2, p. 171). 📖 Todas las obras románicas deben contemplarse teniendo en cuenta esta función evangelizadora y no artística: "Esos artistas no se proponían crear una imagen convincente de la naturaleza o realizar obras bellas, sino que deseaban comunicar a sus hermanos en la fe el contenido y el mensaje de la historia sagrada... Recordemos las palabras del papa Gregorio, el Grande: La pintura puede ser para los iletrados lo mismo que la escritura para los que saben leer..." ("La Historia del Arte." E.H. Gombrich . Edt. Phaidon. Pag. 106) ◽◽◽◽◽◽ #ars_sacra #art #arte #arteromanico #beautiful #capitel #cultura #edadmedia #escultura #estaes_arte #historiadelarte #iglesia #italia #lesfotosdesancho #medieval #museo #pisa #romanesque #románico #total_sacro #toscana #viajar
Beautiful Holy Water Pile at the entrance of the The Basilica of St. Isidoro in León, Spain. The frescoes from the Middle Age at both the monastery and the Basilica are know as the Sixtine Chapel of the Romanesque Art. The chapel has a privilege since time inmemorial to have the Blessed Sacrament ever exposed. #catholicart #sundaymass

En la portada norte podéis ver una curiosa pareja de animales con cabeza humana, bajo la incripción LU MA. Posiblemente un toro y un león, representación de Lucas y Mateo. ...

Squeezing in another church on a one day visit. St Stephen’s Cathedral took centuries to build and consecrate, from 1147 to approx 1647. Like St Charles, it’s also a mix of different architectural styles although Gothic really reigns. #stephansdom #ststephenscathedral #cathedral #romanesque #gothic #earlybaroque #baroque #wien #vienna #austria #mongonthemove #stephanskirche #stephansplatz #architecture #design
Plat català que representa a una torre de finals del s. XVII. Sèrie de "poblet". La sanefa decorada dels plats és el que dóna nom a la "sèrie" corresponent i també ens precisa molt la data de la peça.💜 . . #empordaforever#antiques#antiquedealer #europeanworksofart #old#antiguitats #worksofart #furniture #carvedwood #collector #catalan #art #spanishart #arte #antiguedades #casket #arqueta #Sobranigues #table #sculpture #trunk #coffret #romanesque #renaissance #baroque #ceramica #ceramicacatalana #antiqueceramic #forsale

🦁 Interior, Cangas de Onís, Asturias, Spain - Monastery of San Pedro de Villanueva ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ⓒ Peter Callas 2019. All Rights Reserved. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During a construction campaign in 1774, the nave (or the naves - it is unknown whether there were one or three) of the Romanesque structure were removed. However, the outer walls and the apse were fortuitously saved. The plan had been to tear down the entire church and it is unknown why or how this was averted. The current building is covered with a large semicircular vault divided into three sections. This replaced the medieval roof, which was almost certainly made of wood. It was necessary to construct exterior buttresses to accomodate the weight of the new roof. A choir was also built at this time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some capitals on the arches of the interior of the main apse show what appear to be narrative scenes of a struggle. One on the south side depicts a man armed with a sword who confronting a fierce lion which forces his left front claw on the man’s shield. The capitals of the south apse, depict a struggle between man and animals such as lions and birds. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Text sources: en.m.wikipedia.org; m.arteguias.com ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #CangasdeOnís #asturias #SanPedrodeVillanueva #monastery #spain #caminodesantiago #Reconquista #Artroman #spain_photographs #romanesque #ig_asturias #KingFavila #sculpture #medieval #architecture #instagood #australianartist #instatravel #photography #instago #travel #travelling #picoftheday #instaart #middleages #12thcentury #ig_spain #sculpture #alchemy #stonemason

Ещё один вид на Сен-Сернен, который не поместился в карусель, но очень мне нравится всё равно, потому что напоминает о моменте, как я туда подходила, и такое нежное солнце светило! В прошлом посте я написала, что стоит базилика уже десять веков. Самое занимательное, что в позапрошлом веке её реконструировали немного на свой лад и многое поменяли, а в наше время всё от "нововведений" отчислили, чтобы вид был максимально оригинальный. Отличный подход, я считаю: не в каждом городе встретишь здание, строить которое начали ещё в 1080-м! . . . #europe #france #occitanie #hautegaronne #toulouse #saintsernin #basilicadesaintsernin #basilicaofsaintsernin #basilica #church #romanesque #architectureporn #architecture #frencharchitecture #travelblog #travelgram #travel #instatravel #европа #франция #тулуза #окситания #верхняягаронна #ритинафранция #жизньвофранции #церковь #базиликасенсернен #сенсернен #путешествие #caminodesantiago
Photo by @emilia_romanica   Sep 2018 The church of Saint-Nizier of Burnand 🇫🇷 is a beautiful Romanesque church mentioned in the C11. During electrical work around 1980, a protrusion dug in the south wall of the apse revealed traces of color. After research and restoration, it turned out that mural paintings were two superposed decorations (early C12 and middle C15).

I am in love with this little sculpture I picked up at a flea market today. I have no idea how old it is but it is hand carved and made of stone. The guy told me it belonged to the artist Kyohei Inukai, who had purchased it in Spain. I believe it was his because he had a lot of his stuff, including his woodcutting tools and I bought a woodcut too. The baby’s head has been reattached at some point. #sculpture #medieval #medievalart #romanesque #religiousart #madonnaandchild #sacredart #gothicart #handcarved #kyoheiinukai

One of my favorite finds from Italy is this little clay woman. She is missing an arm and a leg and looks like she was in a fire. I found her in a pile of trash and rescued her.... no clue how old she is. We lived on a military base outside of Napoli and unfortunately the countryside was littered with trash. But of course...as Americans do in Italy ( I guess it’s a thing ) we would drive around the country roads looking for discarded demijohns ( I found more than a dozen ) and she was one of the treasures found ❤️! #vintagefinds #myvintagestyle #americanslivingabroad #italianvintage #romanesque #italianstatue #rescued #onemanstrash

Inside Sant Pau Del Camp, the oldest church in Barcelona, you can see the use of simple, sturdy walls, round arches, and barrel vaults to construct the Monastery. #Romanesque #Darkages
