Wide-ranging and literate, this thoroughly illustrated introduction to Byzantine art, first published in the 1960s, is an indispensable classic. Though it focuses on the extraordinary early Christian treasures of Constantinople (including site plans and photographs of mosaics, carving and decoration), the book also includes chapters on Sicily, Venice and Slavonic art of the Balkans. With 250 illustrations, many in color, and accompanying text, it is a compact introduction to the art and architecture of the era.
