      The pointed architecture of England of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries differs from the Gothic of France, in the profiles of its subordinate members, such as capitals, bases, cornices, etc., no less than in its larger structural characteristics. This difference is manifest from the first, and is constant except where, as at Canterbury, the profiles are of French workmanship or design.   Having examined the larger structural features of Gothic and other pointed architecture, we may now examine the forms of the lesser members—such as capitals, bases, string-courses, arch-sections, and tracery. The profiles which these members assume are determined largely by functional exigencies, though in their development the exercise of artistic feeling was so intimately connected .

Ranging geographically from Poland to Portugal and from Sicily to Scotland and chronologically from tothe book analyzes changes from Romanesque to Gothic as well as the evolution within the Gothic style and places these changes in the context /5(7).

The French origin of Gothic is, indeed, now pretty generally admitted on the continent of Europe; but the exclusive claim of the architecture of France, in the Middle Ages, to be called Gothic has not thus far, so far as I know, been advanced.

The essential character of the Gothic period, particularly at the outset, was the predominance of architecture; all the other arts were determined by it. The character of the Gothic visual aesthetic was one of immense vitality; it was spikily linear and restlessly active.

Architecture was the most important and original art form during the Gothic period. The principal structural characteristics of Gothic architecture arose out of medieval masons’ efforts to solve the problems associated with supporting heavy masonry ceiling vaults over wide spans. texts All Books All Texts latest This Just In Smithsonian Libraries FEDLINK (US) Genealogy Lincoln Collection.

[Charles H Moore].The Development of Gothic Architecture To describe the development of Gothic Architecture, you must first know what the Gothic Period is. The Gothic Period is described as the time between Romanesque and Renaissance periods. This ranges from the end of the 6th well into the 16th century in.

Such a building might lead to the belief that a Gothic development, though not a native one, had begun in England almost as early as in France. But Malmesbury stands an isolated instance, and there is no other contemporaneous building in England like it.
