Well normally I can deal with tall the shit that gets thrown around on the internet. I guess this is my limit. Congrats, you won. I give up. Hope it makes you feel like the big strong man you are. The truth is, she was attacked and sexually assaulted and people are killed over sexual assaults all the time. But if all you can make are ad hominem arguments, fine. I can't deal with that. It makes me sick to my stomach. I don't know why it's hard to believe people like you exist. If a man can overpower a young girl, and sexually assault her while carving derisive words into her skin, why wouldn't someone be shitty under the cover of anonymity? Oh well.

...I know basic history, yes. And that's honestly kind of my point. The Roman Empire didn't just up and leave, and people didn't "forget" how to draw, or sculpt. People continued doing what they'd done before. People in the west didn't bring down the Empire in some cataclysmic event that kept culture back for a thousand years. They basically were Roman by the time the Empire in the West had fallen.

But styles changed. Economy played a big role- you couldn't nearly as easily afford to pay a full-time artist to do art. And you get different art- some of it very good, as well (see above).

I agree with you, so I rescind my red thumb. Apologies.

However, were discussing which was better, medieval art, or greco-roman art. He said medieval (specifically gothic), I said greco-roman (using the parthenon as a worst-of example), and then you threw in a roman example and then sounded like you were using that as an example of why my greco-roman example did not validate my point and that yours was better? Hence my confusion.
TLDR; I agree with you, but that's not what we were really debating.

I was using a medieval Roman example. The debate wasn't over Roman vs. Germanic art or something, it was Roman vs. Medieval.

I went early medieval 'cause that's what we should really be talking about here (seeing as late medieval/renaissance copied off the Romans only it used better technology, so of course it's going to look better).

The Parthenon was more flamboyant. Medieval Christians were less idolatrous, of course, so they focused less on gold statues and pomp. And Chartres is something like nine times taller than the Parthenon. More complex architectural techniques. So yes, Gothic cathedrals>Parthenon.

And again, that pic just proves my point. Most Greek painting was around two colors, except for the statues and temples and such, which were garish and probably kind of eyesores. Medieval painters had better use of color in ways that bring out the vivacity of the work.

I think the Parthenon is worse than pic related. Yes, those are mozaics made of gold.

That's not late medieval at all though, that's Hagia Sophia built by the Byzantines in the 6th Century...
#28 - hongkonglongdong (03/26/2015) [-]
Where did I say it was late medieval? In fact, the whole point was that it was 6th century...

Dude, the byzantines were romans. They were the east half of the empire that didn't fall, after Rome was split into two halves.
