art history: Byzantine Art

Collection by Judy


Constantine moved Roman Empire capital to Byzantium/Constantinople. Byzantine style becomes discernible within Early Christian art as early as the beginning of the 5th century, soon after the effective division of the Empire. During the reign of Justinian in 527-565 A.D., Byzantium/Constantinople (Istanbul, Turkey) reasserted its political dominance over the West - became undisputed artistic capital. Justinian was an art patron.
