Masons and Sculptors in Romanesque Burgundy : The New Aesthetic of Cluny III. by C. Edson Armi.

Plan of Cluny Abbey, with portal and pre-nave and two towers, on the west . The new church was 187 meters long, and designed to accommodate two hundred and fifty monks.

Plan of Cluny Abbey, with portal and pre-nave and two towers, on the west, two transepts with towers, and an apse with radiating chapels on the east. Plan of Saint-Front de Périgueux, a cruciform with five cupolas, modeled after St Mark's Basilica in Venice. It also appeared in Burgundy and in an experimental version at the Abbey of Vezelay at about the same time. These vaults allowed ceilings that were lighter and stronger, and carried the weight outwards to columns and buttresses, so the supporting walls could be higher and thinner, with larger windows.

For nearly a century, archaeologists and art historians studying the great third abbey at Cluny (Cluny III) have "agreed on a set of abstract principles, including its spontaneous generation or revolutionary character, and posited an overseeing genius who selected from non-local sources." In a sweeping revision of that position, this book argues that Cluny Ill is "the building where regional masons of different traditions first combined their talents to develop a new design," and further maintains that the artisans responsible for the masonry of Cluny Ill also created its sculpture. Professor Armi reaches these conclusions through a painstaking analysis of archaeological evidence, such as masons' marks, and a careful "hand analysis" of the site's sculpture, allowing observation of both individual and general design changes, turning points, and stylistic trends. As a result of his investigation of the major Burgundian structures of the period Cluny, Vézelay, Paray-le-Monial, Anzy-le-Duc, Perrecy-les-Forges, etc., the author has established a new chronology for the architecture of the region. He also has identified the careers of the major artists who carved the portal and capital sculpture. His research has even disproved the traditional assumption that sculpture was carved in situ, for his evidence reveals that finished pieces were fitted into the masonry at Cluny III and elsewhere. By focusing on the work of individual masons and on progressive alterations in architectural detail, the author has broken with the method of his predecessors, but there is ample support for both his methods and his conclusions in the book's 400 illustrations. In his use of macrophotography alone, Armi has added a valuable new methodological tool for the comprehension of both architecture and sculpture, but his most important contribution to the field lies in showing that, by working together, two local groups of masons merged their separate traditions to create a magnificent synthesis: the Cluniac High Romanesque style.
