By Holger A. Klein, Stephen Fliegel , Virginia Brilliant

From the austere spirituality of a ninth-century Byzantine icon of the Virgin to the exalted frivolity of a fourteenth-century French table fountain, this book gives new coherence to the Cleveland Museum of Art's impressive collection of early secular, religious, and medieval art spanning more than 1,000 years of European culture. All of the objects have been freshly photographed and the latest scholarship has been applied to the commentaries and text.
