Gothic Art was a Medieval art style that lasted about 200 years in europe, before the beginning of the Renaissance. The earliest Gothic art was Christian sculptures, born on the walls of Cathedrals and abbeys, often allegorical in nature, showing the stories of the New Testament and the Old Testament side by side. During this period mages of the Virgin Mary changed from the Byzantine iconic form to a more human and affectionate mother. By the late 14th century, it had evolved towards a more secular and natural style known as International Gothic, which continued until the late 15th century, where it evolved into Renaissance art. The primary Gothic art mediums were sculpture, panel painting, stained glass, fresco and illuminated manuscript.   continue on wikipedia
