Christ and Apostles

Christ and Apostles

Date Early 12th century

Movement Mature Romanesque

Located at Berzé-la-Ville, France

 

Most wall decorations at Cluny have been destroyed; however, we can obtain a sense of their style by looking to the Abbot’s retreat at Berzé-la-Ville. There is a clear Byzantine influence (note the highlighting of the garments and wide eyes) by way of northern Italian works.
