(click/touch triangles for details)
Definition
a style of architecture characterized by slender vertical piers and counterbalancing buttresses and by vaulting and pointed arches — famously popularized in European cathedrals built between the 12th and 16th centuries
  • But the print, Feininger's "Church of the Minorites," had an appeal to him that was irrelevant to the art in that its subject, a kind of Gothic cathedral, created from semiabstract lines and planes and colors and shades, seemed to reflect his mind's vision of the Church of Reason and that was why he'd put it here.
