dc.descriptionBernard Smith was an Australian art historian, art critic and academic, including at the University of Melbourne. He has been described as the founder of Australian Art History, and his presence and influence in Australian cultural life immense. This is one of many of his lectures given in the Fine Arts Department of the University of Melbourne between 1956 and 1966 and at a time when it was the only art history department in an Australian university. They are lectures in the history of art that range from Palaeolithic to the Romantic Movement. These lectures are presented as originally written and are archival in nature with no attempt to bring them up-to-date. They belong to their time.
dc.description.abstractBy Carolingian art we refer to the art which was produced under the direct influence of the court of Charles the Great or Charlemagne who became king of the Franks in 768 and Emperor of the West in 800. Carolingian art marks an important chapter in the history of art because it may be said to mark the dawn, (or true beginning) of the art of western Europe.
