Michael Camille in Gothic Art: Glorious Visions (pp. 71-72) writes about the ensemble of sculpture and glass of the west portals of Chartres Cathedral, â€œThe modern viewer often misunderstands medieval pictorial narratives, not because the visual forms are so different, but because they were meant to be seen within a totally different temporality…Time is presented (here) as multilayered.â€ Write an essay in which you explore the themes presented in the sculpture and glass of the Chartres west facade. How is it reflected in the choice, treatment, and arrangement of subjects and what you might imagine as the experience of the viewer? Do the individual figures and scenes combine to offer an overall coherent message: briefly explain. Feel free to bring in comparative examples from other sculptural ensembles. Please do not site other than the attached book sources. The attached book should be the only source/help.
