Artistic Cross-currents in 16th Century Europe


This map illustrates the influence of religion on art during the 16th Century. While some religions and religious branches thought positively of art, like Catholicism and the Eastern Orthodox, others thought negatively of art like Islam, Calvinism, and Anglican.
Additionally, the map indicates different art mediums found all over Europe, from sculpture to printmaking. The emigration and travel of architects, artists and craftsman is also indicated, along with the destination. .
