Romanesque Medieval (pt. 6)

Notice a trend here?  Art during this time is almost solely purposed towards religious, evangelistic, and ecclesiastical ends.  Romanesque painters had the ability to be realistic in their art (that is, they had the skill to create graceful and beautiful figures like those of the Greeks), but they chose not to be.  They wanted to make their stories simple and straightforward without too much artistry so that people could easily understand the biblical lessons presented and get saved.
