In Plate XXV. In the attempt at relief shown in several of the examples, we have evidence that their taste was no longer so refined as that of their Greek teachers.

The borders, formed by a repetition of hexagons at the top and the sides of the page, are the types from which we may directly trace all that immense variety of Byzantine, Arabian, and Moresque mosaics.

The most effective arrangement appears to be black dado, red pilasters and frieze, with yellow, blue, or white panels, the uppe r part above the frieze being in whit e, with coloured decorations upon it.

The best arrangem ent of colours for the ornaments on the ground appears to be, on the black grounds, green and blue in masses, red sparingly, and yell ow still more so.

On the blue grounds, white in thin line s, and yellow in masses. On the red grounds, green, white, and blue in thin lines : the yell ow on red is not effective unless heighten ed with shade.

Almost every variety of shade and tone of colour may be found at Pompeii. Blue , red, and yellow are used, not only in small quan tities in the ornaments, but also in larg e masses as grounds for the panels and pilaster s.

The yellow of Pompeii, however, near ly approaches orange, and the red is strongly tinged wit h blue. The whole style, however, of the deco ration is so capricious that it is beyond the range of true art, and strict criticism cannot be applied to it.

It generally plea ses, but, if not absolutely vulgar, it oftentimes approaches vulg arity. It owes its greatest cha rm to the light, sketchy, free-hand manner of its execution, which it is quite impossible to rend er in any drawing ; and Owen Jones.

Fragments from the Forum of Trajan, Rome. From the Frieze of the Arch of the Goldsmiths, Rome. Brescia, T H E real greatness of the Romans is rather to be seen in their palaces, baths, theatres, aqueducts, and other works of public utility, than in their temple architecture, which being the expression of a religion borrowed from the Greeks, a n d i n w h i c h probably t h e y h a d l i t t l e faith, exhibits a corresponding want of earnestness and art-worship.

In the Roman temple the aim was self-glorification. F r o m t h e base of the column to the apex of the pediment every part is overloaded with ornament, tending rather to dazzle by quantity than to excite admiration by the quality of the work.

The Greek temples when painted were as ornamented as those of the Romans, but with a very different r e s u l t. The ornament was so a r r a n g e d t h a t i t t h r e w a coloured bloom over the whole s t r u c t u r e , a n d i n n o way disturbed the exquisitely designed surfaces which received it.

The Romans ceased to v a l u e t h e general proportions of the s t r u c t u r e a n d the contours of the moulded surfaces, which were entirely destroyed by the elaborate surface-modelling of the ornaments carved on them ; and t h e s e o r n a m e n t s do not grow n a t u r a l l y f r o m t h e s u r f a c e , b u t a r e applied o n i t.

T h e acanthus leaves under the modillions, and t h o s e r o u n d t h e b e l l o f t h e Corinthian capitals, are placed one before the other most unartistically.

The fatal facilities which t h e R o m a n system of decorati on gives for manufac turing ornamen t, by applying acanthus leaves to any form a n d i n a n y d irection, is t h e c h i e f c a u s e of the invasion of this ornamen t into most modern works.

I t requires so l i t t l e t h o u g h t , and i s s o complet ely a manufac ture, that it has encourag ed architec ts i n a n i n d o l e n t n e g l e c t o f o n e o f their especial province s, and the interior decorati ons of building s have fallen into hands most unfitted to supply their place.

In the use of the acanthus leaf the Romans showed but little a r t. T h e y received it from the Greeks beautiful ly conventi onalised ; they went much nearer to the general outline, but exaggera ted the surface-d ecoration.

The Greeks confined themselv es to expressin g the principle of the foliation of the leaf, and bestowed all their care in the delicate undulatio ns of its surface.

The ornamen t engraved a t t h e h e a d of t h e c h a p t e r i s typical of all Roman ornamen t, which consists universa lly of a scroll growing out of another scroll, encirclin g a flower or group of leaves.

This example , however , is construc ted o n G r e e k principl es, b u t i s w a n t i n g in Greek refineme nt. The acanthus leaf is a l s o s e e n , as it were, in side elevatio n.

The purely Roman method of using the acanthus leaf is seen in the Corinthi an capitals, and in the Owen Jones.

The only difference which exists is in the proportion of the general form of the mass ; the decline in this proportion from that of Jupiter Stator may be seen readily.

How different from the immense variety of Egyptian capitals which arose from the modification of the general p l a n o f the capital, even the introduction of the Ionic volute in the Composite order fails to add a beauty, but rather increases the deformity.

The pilasters from the Villa Medici, Nos. As specimens of modelling and drawing they have strong claims to be admired, but as ornamental accessories to the architectural features of a building they most certainly, from their excessive relief and elaborate surface treatment, are deficient in the first principle, viz.

T h e a m o u n t o f design that can be obtained by working out this principle of leaf within leaf and leaf over leaf is very limited ; and it was not till this principle of one leaf growing out of another in a continuous line was abandoned f o r the adoption o f a continuous stem throwing off ornaments on either side, that pure conventional ornament received any develop-ment.

The earliest examples of the change are found in St. Sophia at Constantinople ; and we introduce here an example front St. Denis, where, although the s w e l l i n g a t t h e stem and the turned-back leaf at the junction of stem and s t e m h a v e entirely disappeared, the continuous stem is not yet fully developed, as it appears in the narrow border top a n d b o t t o m.

This principle became very common in the illuminated MSS. Denis, Paris. The frieze from the Arch of the Goldsmiths is, on the contrary, defective from the opposite cause.

T We h a v e n o t thought it necessary to give in this series any o f t h e painted decorations of the Romans, of which remains exist in t h e R o m a n b a t h s.

We h a d no reliable materials at command ; and, further, they are so similar to those at Pompeii, and show r a t h e r w h a t t o avoid than what to follow, that w e h a v e thought it sufficient to introduce the two subjects from the Forum of Trajan, in which figures terminating in s c r o l l s m a y b e said t o b e t h e foundation of that prominent feature in their painted decorations.

Thus, in the Byzantine style, we perceive that various schools have combined to form its peculiar characteristics, and we shall proceed to point out briefly what were the principal formative causes.

Even before the transfer of the s e a t o f t h e R o m a n E m p i r e f r o m R o m e t o Byzantium, at the commencement of the fourth century, we see all the arts in a state either of decline or transformation.

Certain as i t i s t h a t R o m e had given her peculiar style of a r t t o t h e numerous foreign peoples ranged beneath her sway, i t i s no less certain t h a t t h e h y b r i d art of her provinces had powerfully reacted o n t h e c e n t e r of civilization ; and even at t h e c l o s e of t h e t h i r d century had materially affected that lavish style of decoration which characterised the magnificent baths and other public buildings of Rome.

The necessity which Constantine found himself u n d e r, when newly settled in Byzantium, of employing Oriental artists and workmen, wrought a still more vital and marked change in t h e traditional style ; and there c a n b e l i t t l e doubt b u t t h a t each surrounding nation a i d e d in g i v i n g i t s i m p r e s s to t h e n e w l y -formed school, according t o t h e state o f i t s civilisation and its capacity for Art, u n t i l a t last the motley mass became fused into one systematic whole during the long and for Art prosperous reign of the first Justinian.

T H E vagueness with which writers on Art have treated the Byzantine and Romanesque styles of Architecture, even to within the last few years, has extended itself also to their concomitant decoration.

Sofia at Constantinople, that we could obtain any complete and definite idea of what constituted pure Byzantine ornament. San Vitale at Ravenna, though thoroughly Byzantine a s t o its architecture, still afforded us but a very incomplete notion of Byzantine ornamentation : San Marco at Venice represented b u t a phase of the Byzantine school ; and the Cathedral of Monreale, and other examples of the same style in Sicily, served only to show the influence, but hardly to illustrate the true nature, of pure Byzantine Art : Owen Jones.

On t h e f r i e z e of the theatre at T Patara a , a n d a t t h e Temple of Venus at Aphrodisia s Caria , are to be seen examples of flowing foliage such as we allude to.

Placing on o n e s i d e t h e question of how far Byzantine workmen or artists were employed in Europe, t h e r e c a n b e no possible doubt that the character of the Byzantine school of ornament is very strongly impressed on all the earlier works of central and even Western Europe, which are generically termed Romanesque.

Pure Byzantine ornament is distinguished by broad-toothed and acute-pointed leaves, which in springings of the teeth w i t h d e e p holes ; the running foliage is generally thin and continuous, as at Nos.

The ground, whether in mosaic or painted work, is almost universally gold ; t h i n i n t e r l a c e d patterns are preferred to g e o m e t r i c a l d e s i g n s.

The introduction of animal or o t h e r f i g u r e s is very limited in sculpture, and in colour is confined principally to holy subjects, in a stiff, conventional style, exhibiting little variety or feeling ; sculpture f in the accompanying example from Sta.

Sofia f ; and at a later period, i. Romanesque ornament, o n t h e other hand, depended mainly on sculpture for effect : i t i s rich in light and shade, deep cuttings, massive projections, a n d a great intermixture of figure-subjects of every kind with foliage and conventional ornament.

The place of mosaic work is generally supplied by paint ; in coloured ornament, animals are as freely introduced as in sculpture, vide No.

Interesting and instructive as i t i s t o trace the derivation of these forms in the Byzantine style, it is no less so to m a r k t h e transmission of them a n d o f others t o l a t e r epochs.

Denis we have one instance out of numbers of the reproduction so common at Sta. Sofia, as seen at Nos. Some are more markedly Byzantine, however, as No.

The pavements of the Romanesque churches in I t a l y are rich in examples of this class; the tradition of which was handed down from the Augustan age of Rome ; a good idea of the nature of this ornament is given in Nos.

Local styles, on the system of marble inlay, existed in several parts of Italy during the Romanesque period, which bear little relation either to Roman or Byzantine models.

Such is No. Important as we perceive the influence of Byzantine Art to have been in Europe, from the sixth to the eleventh century, and still later, there is no people whom it affected more than t h e g r e a t and spreading Arab race, who propagated the creed of Mahomet, conquered the finest countries of the East, and finally obtained a footing even in Europe.

In the earlier buildings executed by them at Cairo, Alexandria, Jerusalem, Cordova, and Sicily, the influence of the Byzantine style is very strongly marked.

The traditions o f t h e Byzantine school affected more o r l e s s all the adjacent countries ; in Greece they remained almost unchanged to a v e r y late period, and they have served, in a great degree, as the basis to all decorative art in t h e E a s t and in Eastern Europe.

Generally there w a s m o r e variety in their surface treatment ; the feathering which forms so prominent a f e a t u r e o n the ornaments on seem to be one of the earliest examples of the change.

T h e u p r i g h t patterns on this Plate, chiefly from the soffits of windows, and therefore having all an upright tendency in their lines , may be considered as the g e r m s o f a l l those exquisitely-designed patterns of t h i s c l a s s , where the r e p e t i t i o n o f the s a m e p a t t e r n s s i d e b y s i d e produces another or several others.

T H E architecture of t h e T u r k s , as s e e n a t Constantinople, is in all its structural features mainly based upon the early Byzantine monuments ; their system of ornamentation, however, i s a modification of the Arabian, bearing about the same relation to this style as Elizabethan ornament does to Italian Renaissance.

When t h e a r t of one p e o p l e i s adopted b y a n o t h e r having the same religion, but differing in natural character and instincts, we should expect to find a deficiency in all those qualities in which the borrowing people are inferior to their predecessors.

We are, however, inclined to believe t h a t t h e Turks have rarely themselves practised the arts ; but that t h e y h a v e r a t h e r c o m m a n d e d the execution than been themselves executants.

On t h e s a m e buildings, side by side with ornaments derived from Arabian and Persian floral ornaments, we find debased Roman and Renaissance details, leading to the belief that these buildings have mostly been executed by artists differing in religion from themselves.

In more recent times, the Turks have been the first of the Mohammedan Owen Jones. The only examples we have of perfect ornamentation are t o b e found i n T u r k e y carpets ; but The productions of the T u r k s a t t h e Great Exhibition of w e r e t h e least perfect of all the Mohammedan exhibiting nations.

The d e s i g n s a r e thoroughly Arabian, differing from Persian carpets in being much more conventional i n t h e treatment In Mr.

The general principles of the distribution of form are t h e s a m e , but there are a few minor differences that it will be desirable to point out.

The surface of an ornament both i n t h e Arabian and Moresque styles is only slightly rounded, and the enrichment of the surface is obtained by sinking lines on this surface ; or where the surface was left plain, the additional pattern upon pattern was obtained by painting.

The Turkish ornament, o n t h e contrary, presents a carved surface, and such ornaments as we find p a i n t e d i n the A r a b i a n M S S.

Another peculiarity, a n d o n e w h i c h a t once distinguishes a p i e c e o f Turkish ornament from Arabian, is the great abuse which was made of the re-entering curve A A.

This is very prominent i n t h e Arabian, but more especially in the Persian styles. With the Moors it is no longer a feature, and appears only exceptionally.

This peculiarity was adopted i n t h e Elizabethan ornament, which, through the Renaissance of France and Italy, was derived from the East, in imitation of the damascened work which was at that period so common.

It is very difficult, nay, almost impossible, thoroughly to explain by words differences in style of A ornament having such a strong family resemblance as the Persian, Arabian, and Turkish ; yet the eye Turkish.

The general principles remaining the same in the Persian, the Arabian, and the Turkish styles of ornament, there will be found a peculiarity in the proportions of the masses, more or less grace in the flowing of the curves, a fondness for particular directions i n t h e leading lines, and a peculiar mode of interweaving forms, the general form of the conventional leafage ever remaining the same.

The relative degree of fancy, delicacy, or coarseness, with which these are drawn, will at once distinguish them as the works of the refined and spiritual Persian, the not less refined but reflective Arabian, or the unimaginative Turk.

One great feature of Turkish ornament is the predominance of green and black ; and, in fact, i n t h e modern decoration of Cairo the same thing is observed.

Green is much more prominent than in ancient examples where blue is chiefly used. Plaster Ornaments, used as upright and horizontal Bands enclosing Panels on the walls.

O U R illustrations of the ornament of the Moors have been taken exclusively from the Alhambra, not only because i t i s t h e o n e of their works with which we are best acquainted, but also because it i s t h e o n e i n w h i c h t h e i r marvellous system of decoration reached its culminating p o i n t.

The Alhambra is at the very summit of perfection of Moorish art, as is the Parthenon of Greek art. We can find no work so f i t t e d t o illustrate a G r a m m a r of Ornament a s t h a t i n which every ornament contains a grammar in itself.

Every principle which we can derive from the study of the ornamental art of any o t h e r p e o p l e i s not only ever present here, but w a s b y t h e Moors more universally and truly obeyed.

We find in the Alhambra the speaking art of the Egyptians, the natural grace and refinement of t h e G r e e k s , the geometrical combination s o f t h e Romans, t h e Byzantines, a n d t h e Arabs.

The ornament wanted but one charm, which was the peculiar feature of the Egyptian ornament, symbolism. This t h e r e l i g i o n o f the Moors forbade ; but the w a n t w a s m o r e than supplied by the inscriptions, which, addressing themselves to the eye by their outward beauty, at once excited the intellect by the difficulties of deciphering their curious and complex involutions, and delighted the imagination when read, by the beauty of the sentiments they expressed and the music of their composition.

To t h e artist and those provided with a m i n d t o estimate the value o f the beauty to which they gave a life they repeated , Look a n d l e a r n.

To the people they proclaim ed the might, majesty, and good d e e d s o f t h e k i n g. T o t h e king himself they never ceased declarin g that there was none powerful b u t G o d , that He alone was conqueror, and that to Him alone was for ever due praise and glory.

It is asserted in the inscrip tions on the walls, that this buildin g surpas sed all other buildin gs ; that at sight of its wonderful domes all other domes vanishe d and disappe ared ; in the playfu l exagge ration of their poetry, that the stars grew pale i n their light throug h envy of so much beauty ; and, what is more to our purpos e, they declare t h a t h e who should study them with attenti on would reap the benefi t of a commentary on decoration.

The princip les which are everyw here the s a m e , the forms only differ. They ever regard the useful as a vehicle for the beauti ful ; a n d i n t h i s they do not stand alone : the same princip le was observ ed in all the best period s of a r t : i t i s only when art decline s that true princip les come to be disrega rded ; or, in an age of copyin g, like the presen t, when the works of the past are reprod uced withou t the spirit which animat ed the origina ls.

All lines grow o u t o f e a c h other in gradua l undula tions ; t h e r e a r e n o excres cences ; nothing could be remove d and leave the design equally good or better.

In a genera l sense, if constru ction be proper ly attend ed to, there c o u l d b e no excres cences ; but we use the word here in a more limited sense : the genera l lines might follow truly the constru ction, and y e t t h e r e might be excres cences , such as knobs or bosses, which would n o t v i o l a t e the rule of constru ction, and yet w o u l d b e fatal to beauty of f o r m , if they d i d n o t grow out gradua lly from the genera l lines.

There c a n b e n o beauty of form, no perfec t propor tion or arrang ement of lines, which does not produc e repose.

All transit ions of curved l i n e s from curved , o r o f c u r v e d lines from straigh t, must be gradua l.

Where t w o curves are separa te d b y a break as in this case , they must, and with the Moors always A C B DD do, run parallel t o a n imagin ary line c where the curves would be tangential to each other : for were either to depart from this, as in the case at D , t h e eye, instead of following gradua lly down the curve, would run outwar ds, and repose would be lost.

The general forms were first cared for ; these were subdivided by general lines ; the interstices were then filled in with ornament, which was again subdivided and enriched for closer inspection.

They carried out this principle with the greatest refinement, and the harmony and beauty of all their ornamentation derive their chief success from its observance.

Their main divisions contrast and balance admirably : the greatest distinctness is obtained ; the detail never interferes with the general form.

When s e e n a t a distance, the main lines strike the eye ; as we approach nearer, the detail comes into the composition ; on a closer inspection, we see still further detail on the surface of the ornaments themselves.

Harmony of form appears to consist in the proper balancing and contrast of the straight, the inclined, and the curved.

As in colour there can be no perfect composition in which either of the three primary colours is wanting, so in form, whether structural or decorative, there can be no perfect composition in which either o f t h e t h r e e primary figures is wanting ; and the varieties and harmony in composition and design depend on the various predominance and subordination o f t h e three.

Then add lines giving a circular tendency, as at C , and you have now complete harmony. In this case the square is the A B C leading form or tonic ; t h e a n g u l a r a n d curved are subordinate.

In the surface decorations of the Moors all lines flow out of a parent stem : every ornament, however distant, can be traced to its branch and root.

They have the happy art of so adapting the ornament to the surface decorated, that the ornament as often appears to have suggested t h e general form as to have been suggested b y i t.

In a l l c a s e s we find the foliage flowing out of a parent stem, and we are never offended, E D F a s i n m o d e r n practice, by t h e r a n d o m introduction of an ornament just dotted down, without a reason for its existence.

Gothic architecture also offers many illustrations of this principle ; every tendency of lines to run in one direction is immediately counteracted by the angular or the curved : thus, the capping of the buttress is exactly what is required to counteract the upward tendency of the straight lines ; so the gable contrasts admirably with the curved windowhead and its perpendicular mullions.

If children were born and bred to the sound of hurdy-gurdies grinding out of tune, their ears would no doubt suffer deterioration, and they would lose their sensibility to the harmonious in sound.

This, then, is what is certainly taking place with regard to form, and it requires the most strenuous efforts to be made by all who would take an interest in the welfare of the rising generation to put a stop to it.

They appear i n t h i s t o w o r k b y a process analogous to t h a t o f nature, as we s e e i n t h e vine-leaf ; the object being to distribute the sap from the parent stem to the extremities, it is evident the main stem would divide the leaf as near as may be into equal areas.

So, again, of the minor divisions ; each area is again subdivided by intermediate lines, which all follow the same law of equal distribution, even to the most minute filling-in of the sap-feeders.

The Moors also follow another principle ; that of radiation from the parent stem, as we may see in n a t u r e w i t h t h e human hand, or in a chestnut leaf.

We m a y s e e i n the example how beautifully all these lines radiate from the parent stem ; how each leaf diminishes towards the extremities, and how each area is in proportion to the leaf.

The Orientals carry out this principle with marvellous perfection ; so also did the Greeks in their honeysuckle ornament. We have already remarked, in Chapter I V.

This is generally the case with Greek ornament ; the acanthus-leaf scrolls are a series of leaves growing out one from the other in a continuous line, whilst the Arabian and Moresque ornaments always grow out of a continuous stem.

All junctions of curved lines with curved, or of curved with straight, should be tangential to each other ; this also we consider t o b e a l a w found everywhere in n a t u r e , a n d t h e Oriental practice i s always in a c c o r d a n c e w i t h it.

Many o f t h e Moorish ornaments are on the same principle which is observable in the lines of a feather and in the articulations of every l e a f ; a n d t o t h i s i s d u e t h a t additional c h a r m f o u n d in a l l p e r f e c t ornamentation, which w e c a l l the graceful.

It m a y b e c a l l e d the melody of form, as what we have before described constitutes its harmony. We shall find these laws of equal distribution, r a d i a t i o n f r o m a p a re n t s t e m , continuity of line, and tangential curvature, ever present in natural leaves.

We would call attention to the nature of the exquisite curves in u s e by t h e A r a b s and Moors. The researches of Mr.

Penrose have shown that the mouldings and curved lines in t h e Parthenon are all portions of curves of a very high order, and that segments of circles were very rarely used.

The exquisite curves o f t h e Greek vases are well known, and here we never find portions of circles. In Roman architecture, on the contrary, this refinement is lost ; the Romans were probably as little able to describe as to appreciate curves o f a high o r d e r, a n d w e f i n d , therefore, their mouldings mostly parts of circles, which could be struck with compasses.

So we think that compositions distributed in equal lines or divisions will be less beautiful than those which require a higher mental effort to appreciate them.

T In the early works o f t h e Gothic period, the tracery would appear to have been much less the offspring of compass-wor k t h a n i n t h e later period, which has most appropriately been termed the Geometrical, from the immoderate use of compass-work.

There is a curve A common to Greek Art, t o t h e Gothic period, and so much delighted i n b y the Mohammeda n races. This becomes graceful the more it departs from the curve which the union of two parts of circles would give.

A still further charm i s f o u n d in the works of the Arabs and Moors from their conventional treatment of ornament, which, forbidden as they were by their creed to represent living forms, they carried to the highest perfection.

They ever worked as nature worked, but always avoided a direct transcript ; they took her principles, but did not, as we do, attempt to copy her works.

In this, again, they do not stand alone : in every period of faith in art, all ornamentatio n was ennobled by the ideal ; never was the sense of propriety violated by a too faithful representatio n of nature.

Thus, in Egypt, a lotus carved in stone was never such an one as you might have plucked, but a conventional representation perfectly in keeping with the architectural members of which it formed a part ; it was a symbol of the power of the king over countries where the lotus grew, and added poetry to what would otherwise have been a rude support.

The colossal statues of the Egyptian s were not little men carved on a large scale, but architectural representations of Majesty, in which were symbolised the power of the monarch , and his abiding love of his people.

I n G r e e k art, the ornament s, no longer symbols, a s i n Egypt, were still further conventio nalised ; and in their sculptur e applied to architecture, they adopted a conventio nal treatmen t both of pose and relief very different to that of their isolated works.

In the best periods of Gothic a r t t h e floral ornamen ts are treated conventio nally, a n d a direct imitation of n a t u r e i s never attempte d ; b u t a s a r t declined , they became less idealised , and more direct in imitation.

The same decline may be traced in stained glass, where both figures and ornamen ts were treated at first conventionally ; b u t a s t h e art declined, figures and draperies , through which light was to be transmitt ed, had their own shades and shadows.

In all a r c h a i c s t y l e s of art, practis ed during period s of faith, the s a m e t r u e princip les prevai l ; and althou gh we find in all somew hat of a local or tempo rary charac ter, we yet discer n in all much that is eterna l and immut able ; the same grand ideas embod ied in differe nt forms, and expres sed, so to speak, in a differe nt langua ge.

The ancient s always used colour to assist in the develo pment of form, always employ ed it as a further means of bringin g out the constru ctive feature s of a buildin g.

In Gothic architecture, also, colour was always employed to assist in developing the forms of the panel-work and tracery ; and this is effected to an extent of which it is difficult to form an idea, in the present colourless condition o f t h e buildings.

I n t h e slender shafts of their lofty edifices, the idea of elevation was still further increased by upward-running spiral lines of colour, which, while adding to the apparent height of the column, also helped to define its form.

In Oriental art, again, we always find the constructive lines of the building well defined by colour ; an apparent additional height, length, breadth, or bulk, always results from its judicious application ; and with the ornaments in relief it developes constantly new forms which would have been altogether lost without it.

The artists have i n t h i s b u t followed the guiding inspiration of Nature, in whose works every transition of form is accompanied by a modification of colour, so disposed as to assist in producing distinctness of expression.

For example, flowers are separated by colour from their leaves and stalks, and these again from the earth in which they grow.

We all know how much the absence or impairment of these colours, as in sickness, contributes to deprive the features of their proper meaning and expression.

Had nature applied but one colour to all objects, they would have been indistinct in form as well as monotonous in a s p e c t.

It i s t h e boundless variety of her tints that perfects the modelling and defines the outline of each ; detaching equally the modest lily from the grass from which it springs, and the glorious sun, parent of all colour, from the firmament in which it shines.

The colours employed by t h e M o o r s on their stucco-work were, in all cases, the primaries, blue, red, and yellow gold. The secondary colours, purple, green, and orange, occur only i n t h e Mosaic dados, which, being near the eye, formed a point of repose from the more brilliant colouring above.

It is t r u e t h a t , at the present day, the grounds of many of the ornaments are found to be green ; it will always be found, however, on a minute examination, that the colour originally employed was blue, which being a metallic pigment, has become green from the effects of time.

This is proved by the presence of the particles of blue colour, which occur everywhere in the crevices : in t h e restorations, also, which were made by the Catholic kings, the grounds of the ornaments were repainted both green and purple.

It may be remarked that, among the Egyptians and the Greeks, the Arabs and the Moors, the primary colours were almost entirely, if not exclusively, employed during the early periods of art ; whilst during the decadence, the secondary colours became of more importance.

Thus, in Egypt, in Pharaonic temples, we find the primary colours predominating ; in the Ptolemaic temples, the secondary : so also on the early Greek temples are found the primary colours, whilst at Pompeii every variety of shade and tone was employed.

In modern Cairo, and in the East generally, we have green constantly appearing side by side with red, where blue would have been used in earlier times.

This is equally true of the works of the Middle Ages. In the early manuscripts and in stained glass, though other colours were not excluded, the primaries were chiefly used ; whilst in later times we have every variety of shade and tint, but rarely used with equal success.

With t h e M o o r s , as a general rule, the primary colours were u s e d o n t h e upper portions T of objects, the secondary and tertiary on the lower.

This also appears to be in accordance with a natural law ; we have the primary blue in the sky, the secondary green in the trees and fields, ending with the tertiaries on the earth ; as also in flowers, where we generally find the primaries o n t h e buds and flowers, and the secondaries on the leaves and stalks.

The ancients always observed this rule in the best periods of art. In Egypt, however, we do see occasionally the secondary green used in the upper portions of the temples, but this arises from the fact, that ornaments in Egypt were symbolical ; and if a l o t u s l e a f were used on the upper part of a b u i l d i n g , i t would necessarily be coloured green ; b u t t h e l a w i s true i n t h e m a i n ; the general aspect of an Egyptian temple of the Pharaonic period gives the primaries above and the secondaries below ; b u t i n t h e buildings of the Ptolemaic and Roman periods more especially, this order was inverted, and the palm and lotus-leaf capitals give a superabundance of g r e e n i n t h e upper portions of the temples.

In Pompeii we find sometimes in the interior of the houses a gradual gradation of colour downwards from the roof, from light to dark, ending with black ; b u t t h i s i s b y no means so universal as to convince us that they f e l t i t a s a law.

We have already shown in Chapter V. Although the ornaments which a r e f o u n d i n the Alhambra, a n d i n t h e Court o f t h e L i o n s especially, are at the present day covered with several thin coats of the whitewash which has at various periods been applied to them, we m a y b e s a i d to h a v e a u t h o r i t y for the whole of the colouring of our reproduction ; for not only may the colours be seen in the interstices of the ornaments in many places by scaling off the whitewash, but the colouring of the Alhambra was carried out on so perfect a s y s t e m , t h a t a n y one w h o w i l l m a k e this a s t u d y c a n , with almost absolute certainty, on being shown for the first time a piece of Moorish ornament in white, define at once the manner in which it was coloured.

So completely were all the architectural forms designed with reference to their subsequent colouring, that the surface alone will indicate the colours they were destined to receive.

Thus, in using the colours blue, red, and gold, they took care to place them in such positions that they should be best seen in themselves, and add most to the general effect.

On moulded surfaces they placed red, the strongest colour of the three, in the depths, where it might be softened by shadow, never on the surface ; blue in the shade, and gold on all surfaces exposed to light : for it is evident that by this arrangement alone c o u l d t h e i r t r u e value b e o b t a i n e d.

In colouring the grounds of the various diapers the blue always occupies the largest area ; a n d t h i s i s in accordance with the theory of optics, and the experiments which have been made with the prismatic spectrum.

The rays of light are said to neutralise each o t h e r i n t h e proportions of 3 yellow, 5 r e d , a n d 8 b l u e ; thus, i t requires a quantity o f b l u e e q u a l to the r e d a n d yellow put together to produce a harmonious effect, and prevent the predominance of any one colour over t h e o t h e r s.

The various principles for which we have contended, the constructive idea whereby each leading line r e s t s u p o n a n o t h e r, t h e gradual transitions from curve to curve, the tangential curvatures of t h e lines, the flowing off of the ornaments f r o m a parent s t e m , the tracing of each flower to its branch and root, the division and subdivision of general lines, will readily be perceived in every ornament on the page.

We have lines running horizontally, perpendicularly, and diagonally, again contrasted by circles in opposite directions.

So that the most perfect repose is obtained, the tendency of the eye to run in any direction is immediately corrected by lines giving an opposite tendency, and wherever the eye strikes upon the p a t t e r n s i t is inclined t o d w e l l.

South Kensington Museum. Although presenting considerable grandeur i n t h e m a i n features, the general outlines a r e m u c h less pure, a n d t h e r e would appear t o b e a great want of elegance in all the constructive features as compared with those of Cairo.

Their system of ornamentation also appears to us m u c h l e s s pure t h a n t h e Arabian and Moresque.

The Persians, u n l i k e t h e Arabs a n d t h e Moors, were free to introduce animal life, a n d t h i s mixing u p o f subjects d r a w n f r o m real l i f e i n their decoration led t o a much less pure style of ornament.

Wi t h the Arabs and Moors, ornaments with their inscriptions had to supply every want, and therefore it became of more importance in their structures, and reached a higher point of elaboration.

Persian ornament is a mixed style ; combining the conventional, which is similar to the Arabian, and probably derived f r o m a common origin, with an attempt at the natural, which sometimes has influenced both the Arabian a n d Tu r k i s h styles, and is even felt in portions of the Alhambra.

The decorations of the houses of Cairo and Damascus, the mosques and fountains of Constantinople more especially, exhibit this mixed style ; groups of natural flowers are constantly found growing from a vase and enclosed in panels of conventional Arabian ornament.

The ornament of modern India also feels this ever-present influence of the Persian mixed style.

The geometrical patterns are purely conventional ornament, and have great affinity with the Arabian, but are less perfect in distribution.

The patterns on P l a t e X LV. Compared w i t h t h e Arabian a n d Moresque mosaics, they e x h i b i t a marked inferiority, both i n t h e distribution of form and in the arrangement of colour.

Compared with t h e Arabian MSS. Plate XXIV. However, the same general principles prevail. The designs exhibit much elegance, and there is great simplicity and ingenuity displayed in the conventional rendering of natural flowers.

When natural flowers are used as decoration, and subjected t o a geometrical arrangement, they can have neither shade nor shadow, as was the case with the later MSS.

Ornaments from Works in Metal, exhibited in the Indian Collection in T H E Exhibition of the Works of Industry of all Nations in was barely opened to the public ere attention was directed to the gorgeous contributions of India.

United by a common faith, their art had necessarily a common expression, this expression varying in each according to the influence to which each nation was subject.

The Tunisian still retaining the art of the Moors who created the Alhambra ; the Turk exhibiting the same art, but modified by the character of the mixed population over which they rule ; the Indian uniting the severe forms of Arabian art with the graces of Persian refinement.

All the laws of the distribution of form which we have already observed in the Arabian and Moresque Ornament are equally to be found in the productions of India.

The same division and subdivision of their general lines, which forms the charms of Moresque ornament, is equally to be found here ; the difference which creates t h e s t y l e i s n o t one of principle, but of individual expression.

In the Indian style ornaments are somewhat more flowing and less conventionalised, and have, doubtless, been more subjected to direct Persian influence.

The ingenious way in which the full-blown flower is shown in N o.

In the application of the various ornaments to the different portions of the objects the greatest judgment is always shown.

The ornament is invariably in perfect scale with the position it occupies ; on the narrow necks of t h e H o o k h a s a r e the small pendent flowers, the swelling forms of the base are occupied by the larger patterns ; at the lower edge, again, appear ornaments having an upward tendency, and, at the same time, forming a continuous line round the form to prevent the eye running o u t o f i t.

Whenever narrow flowing borders are u s e d , as in N o. In the equal distribution of the surface ornament over the grounds, the Indians exhibit an instinct Owen Jones.

The exact balance obtained by the gold embroidery on the green and r ed grounds was so perfect, that it was beyond the power o f a E u r o p e a n hand to copy it with the same complete balance of form and colour.

The way in which the colours are fused in all their woven fabrics, so as to obtain what they always appear to seek, viz. A due regard to economy in the production of o u r P l a t e s h a s necessarily limited the number of printings, and we have not always, therefore, been able to obtain the proper balance of colour.

The Indian collection at South Kensington Museum should be visited and studied b y a l l i n any way connected w i t h t h e production of woven fabrics.

All the examples show the nicest adjustment of the massing of the ornament to the colour of the ground ; every colour or tint, from the palest and most delicate to the d e e p e s t a n d r i c h e s t s h a d e s , receiving j u s t t h e a m o u n t o f ornament t h a t i t is a d a p t e d to bear.

When gold ornaments are used on a coloured ground, where gold is used in large masses, there the ground is darkest.

Where the g o l d i s used more thinly, there t h e g r o u n d i s lighter and more delicate.

When a gold ornament alone is used on a coloured ground, the colour o f t h e ground is carried into it by ornaments or hatchings worked in the ground-colours on the gold itself.

When ornaments in one colour are on a ground of c o n t r a s t i n g colour, the ornament is separated from the ground by an edging of a lighter colour, to prevent all harshness of contrast.

When, on the contrary, ornaments in a colour are on a gold ground, the ornaments are separated from the gold ground by an edging of a darker colour, to prevent the gold overpowering the ornament.

In other cases, where varieties of colour are used on a coloured ground, a general outline of gold, of silver, or of white or yellow silk, separates the ornament f r o m t h e ground, g i v i n g a general tone throughout.

The carpets and low-toned combinations of colour, a black general outline is used for this purpose. The object always appears to be, in the woven fabrics especially, that each ornament should be softly, not harshly, defined ; that coloured objects viewed at a distance should p r e s e n t a neutralised bloom ; that each step nearer should exhibit fresh beauties ; and a close inspection, the means whereby these effects are produced.

The general proportions of the leading lines of the pattern, the skilful distribution of the flowers over the surface, and, notwithstanding the intricacy, the perfect continuity of the lines of the stalks, place i t f a r b e f o r e any European effort of this class.

RICH as has been the harvest gathered by Mons. Botta and Mr. Layard from the ruins of Assyrian Palaces, the monuments which they have made known to us do not appear to carry us back to any remote period of Assyrian Art.

Like the monuments of Egypt, those hitherto discovered belong to a period of decline, and of a decline much further removed from a culminating point of perfection.

The Assyrian must have e i t h e r b e e n a borrowed style, or the remains of a more perfect form of art have yet to be discovered.

We are strongly inclined to believe that the Assyrian is not an original style, but w a s borrowed f r o m t h e E g y p t i a n , modified by the difference of the religion and habits of the Assyrian people.

O n c o m p a r i n g t h e b a s - reliefs of Nineveh with those of Egypt we cannot but be struck with the many points of resemblance in the two styles ; not only is the same mode of representation adopted, but t h e o b j e c t s r e p r e Egyptian.

Assyrian sculpture s e e m s t o b e a d e v e l o p m e n t of the Egyptian, but, instead of being carried forward, descending in the scale of Assyrian.

Egyptian sculpture gradually decline d from the time of the Pharao hs to that of t h e G r e e k s a n d R o m a n s ; the forms, which were at first flowin g and gracefu l, becam e coarse and abrupt ; the swellin g of the limbs, which was at first Owen Jones.

In Assyrian sculpture this a t t e m p t w a s c a r r i e d s t i l l farther, and while the general arrangement of the subject and the pose of the single figure were still conventional, an attempt was made to express the muscles of the limbs and the rotundity of the flesh ; in all art this is a symptom of decline, Nature should be idealized not copied.

Many modern statues differ in the same w a y f r o m t h e Ve n u s d e M i l o , as do the bas-reliefs of the Ptolemies from those of the Pharaohs.

Assyrian Ornament, we think, presents also the same aspect of a borrowed style and one in a state of decline. I t i s t r u e t h a t , a s y e t , w e a re but imperfectly acquainted with it ; the portions of the Palaces which would contain the most ornament, the upper portions of t h e w a l l s a n d t h e ceilings, having been, from the nature of the construction of Assyrian edifices, destroyed.

There can be little doubt, however, that there was as much ornament employed in the Assyrian monuments as in the Egyptian : in both styles there is a total absence of plain surfaces o n t h e w a l l s , w h i c h a r e either covered with subjects o r w i t h w r i t i n g , and in situations where these would have been inapplicable, pure ornament must have been employed to sustain the general effect.

What we possess is gathered from the dresses on the figures of the b a s -reliefs, some few fragments of painted bricks, some objects of bronze, a n d t h e representations of the sacred trees in the bas-reliefs.

As yet we have had no remains of their constructive ornament, the c o l u m n s a n d o t h e r m e a n s of support, which would have been so decorated, being everywhere destroyed ; the constructive ornaments which we have given in Plate XIV.

Assyrian Ornament, though not based o n t h e s a m e t y p e s as the Egyptian, is represented in the same way. In both styles the orna- ments in relief, as well as those painted, are in the nature of diagrams.

There is but little surface-modelling, which was the peculiar invention of the Greeks, who retained it within its true limits, but the Romans carried it to great excess, till at last all breadth of effect was destroyed.

The Byzantines returned again to moderate relief, the Arabs reduced the relief still farther, while with the Moors a modelled surface became extremely rare.

In the other direction, the Romanesque is distinguished in the same way from the Early Gothic, which is itself much broader Assyrian.

With the exception of the pine-apple on the sacred trees, Plate XII. Nature is not followed so closely as by t h e E g y p t ians, nor so exquisitely conventionalised as by the Greeks.

The colours supplied. W E have seen that Egyptian Ornament was derived direct from natural inspiration, that it was founded o n a f e w t y p e s , a n d t h a t it remained unchanged during the w h o l e c o u r s e o f Egyptian civilization, except in the more or less perfection of the execution, the more ancient monuments being the m o s t p e r f e c t.

We have further expressed our belief that the Assyrian was a borrowed style, possessing none o f t h e characteristics of original inspiration, b u t r a t h e r a p p e a r i n g t o h a v e been suggested by t h e Art of Egypt, already in its decline, which decline was carried still farther.

Greek Art, on the contrary, though borrowed partly from the Egyptian and partly from the Assyrian, was the development of an old i d e a i n a new direction; and, unrestrained by religious laws, as would appear Owen Jones.

It carried almost universal, and t h a t t h e l a n d was overflowing with artists , whose hands and m i n d s w e r e s o trained as to enable them to execute these beautiful ornaments with unerring truth.

I t was meaningless , purely decorative, never representativ e, and can hardly be s a i d t o b e constructive ; for the various members o f a G r e e k monument rather present surfaces exquisitely designed t o receive ornament, which they did, at first, painted, and in later times both carved and p a i n t e d.

T h e o r n a m e n t was no part of the construction, as with the Egyptian : it could be removed, and the structure remained unchanged.

However much w e a d m i r e t h e e x t r e m e and almost divine perfection of the Greek monumental sculpture, in its application t h e G r e e k s frequently went beyond the legitimate bounds of ornament.

The frieze of the Parthenon was placed so far from the eye t h a t i t b e c a m e a d i a g r a m : the beauties which so astonish us when seen near the eye could only have been valuable so far as they evidenced the artist-worship which cared not that the eye saw the perfection of the work if conscious that it was t o b e f o u n d t h e r e ; but we are bound to consider this an abuse of means, and that the Greeks were in this respect inferior to the Egyptians, whose system of incavo relievo for monumental sculpture appears to us the more perfect.

The examples of representativ e ornament are very few, with the exception of the wave ornament a n d t h e f r e t u s e d to distinguish water from land in their pictures, and some conventional renderings of trees, as at No.

Whate ver doubts may exist as t o t h e m o r e o r less colouring of the sculpt ure, there can be none as to the ornam ents of the mould ings.

The traces of colour exist everyw here so strong ly, that in taking casts of the mould ings t h e t r a c e s o f t h e p a t t e r n are strong ly mark ed on the plast er cast.

The Mexican ornamen ts and frets, of which we here give some illustrati ons from Mexican pottery in the British Museum, have a remarkab le affinity with the Greek fret : and in Mr.

But they are, in general, fragment ary, like the Chinese : there is also to be found at Yucatan a fret with a diagonal line, which is peculiar.

The ornament No. The individual leaves all radiate from the centre of the group of leaves, each leaf diminishing in exquisite proportion as it approaches the springing of the group.

When we consider that each leaf was done with a single stroke of the brush, and that from the differenc es which appear w e m a y be sure no mechanic al aids were employe d, we must be astonished a t t h e h i g h s t a t e o f t h e Arts which must have existed for artists to be found in such numbers able to execute with unerring truth what it is almost beyond the skill of modern times even to copy with the same happy result.

Berlin, The pilasters are united by a frieze of varying width, about one-fourth of the height of the wall from the top.

The upper space is frequently white, and it is always subjected to a much less severe treatment than the parts below, generally representing the open air, and upon the ground are painted those fantastic architectural buildings which excited the ire of Vitruvius.

In the best examples there is a gradation of colour from the ceiling downwards, ending with black in the dado, but this is very far from being a fixed law.

Yellow Green Red Red which has never been accomplished in any restoration of the style. The reason is obvious ; the artists of Pompeii invented as they drew ; every touch of their brush had an intention which no copyist can seize.

The want of his perfect success consisted in the fact, that his paintings were at the same time too well executed and not sufficiently individual.

They have a thinness of character compared with Greek models, which show a marked inferiority ; we no longer find perfect radiation of lines from the parent stem, nor perfect distribution of masses and proportional areas.

Their charm lies in an agreeable contrast of colour, which is still further heightened when surrounded with other colours in situ.

Red Black Black Purple to give rotundity, but not sufficiently so to detach them from the ground. We have here the acanthus-leaf scroll forming the Blue Yellow Green Green Blue Yellow Black Green groundwork, on which are engrafted representations of leaves and flowers interlaced with animals, precisely similar to the remains found in the Roman baths, and which, in the time of Raphael, Blue Yellow and Red Blue White alternately Black Grey Yellow and Red Black alternately Black Black Green and Red White alternately became the foundation of Italian ornament.

In Plate XXV. In the attempt at relief shown in several of the examples, we have evidence that their taste was no longer so refined as that of their Greek teachers.

The borders, formed by a repetition of hexagons at the top and the sides of the page, are the types from which we may directly trace all that immense variety of Byzantine, Arabian, and Moresque mosaics.

The most effective arrangement appears to be black dado, red pilasters and frieze, with yellow, blue, or white panels, the uppe r part above the frieze being in whit e, with coloured decorations upon it.

The best arrangem ent of colours for the ornaments on the ground appears to be, on the black grounds, green and blue in masses, red sparingly, and yell ow still more so.

On the blue grounds, white in thin line s, and yellow in masses. On the red grounds, green, white, and blue in thin lines : the yell ow on red is not effective unless heighten ed with shade.

Almost every variety of shade and tone of colour may be found at Pompeii. Blue , red, and yellow are used, not only in small quan tities in the ornaments, but also in larg e masses as grounds for the panels and pilaster s.

The yellow of Pompeii, however, near ly approaches orange, and the red is strongly tinged wit h blue. The whole style, however, of the deco ration is so capricious that it is beyond the range of true art, and strict criticism cannot be applied to it.

It generally plea ses, but, if not absolutely vulgar, it oftentimes approaches vulg arity. It owes its greatest cha rm to the light, sketchy, free-hand manner of its execution, which it is quite impossible to rend er in any drawing ; and Owen Jones.

Fragments from the Forum of Trajan, Rome. From the Frieze of the Arch of the Goldsmiths, Rome. Brescia, T H E real greatness of the Romans is rather to be seen in their palaces, baths, theatres, aqueducts, and other works of public utility, than in their temple architecture, which being the expression of a religion borrowed from the Greeks, a n d i n w h i c h probably t h e y h a d l i t t l e faith, exhibits a corresponding want of earnestness and art-worship.

In the Roman temple the aim was self-glorification. F r o m t h e base of the column to the apex of the pediment every part is overloaded with ornament, tending rather to dazzle by quantity than to excite admiration by the quality of the work.

The Greek temples when painted were as ornamented as those of the Romans, but with a very different r e s u l t. The ornament was so a r r a n g e d t h a t i t t h r e w a coloured bloom over the whole s t r u c t u r e , a n d i n n o way disturbed the exquisitely designed surfaces which received it.

The Romans ceased to v a l u e t h e general proportions of the s t r u c t u r e a n d the contours of the moulded surfaces, which were entirely destroyed by the elaborate surface-modelling of the ornaments carved on them ; and t h e s e o r n a m e n t s do not grow n a t u r a l l y f r o m t h e s u r f a c e , b u t a r e applied o n i t.

T h e acanthus leaves under the modillions, and t h o s e r o u n d t h e b e l l o f t h e Corinthian capitals, are placed one before the other most unartistically.

The fatal facilities which t h e R o m a n system of decorati on gives for manufac turing ornamen t, by applying acanthus leaves to any form a n d i n a n y d irection, is t h e c h i e f c a u s e of the invasion of this ornamen t into most modern works.

I t requires so l i t t l e t h o u g h t , and i s s o complet ely a manufac ture, that it has encourag ed architec ts i n a n i n d o l e n t n e g l e c t o f o n e o f their especial province s, and the interior decorati ons of building s have fallen into hands most unfitted to supply their place.

In the use of the acanthus leaf the Romans showed but little a r t. T h e y received it from the Greeks beautiful ly conventi onalised ; they went much nearer to the general outline, but exaggera ted the surface-d ecoration.

The Greeks confined themselv es to expressin g the principle of the foliation of the leaf, and bestowed all their care in the delicate undulatio ns of its surface.

The ornamen t engraved a t t h e h e a d of t h e c h a p t e r i s typical of all Roman ornamen t, which consists universa lly of a scroll growing out of another scroll, encirclin g a flower or group of leaves.

This example , however , is construc ted o n G r e e k principl es, b u t i s w a n t i n g in Greek refineme nt.

The acanthus leaf is a l s o s e e n , as it were, in side elevatio n. The purely Roman method of using the acanthus leaf is seen in the Corinthi an capitals, and in the Owen Jones.

The only difference which exists is in the proportion of the general form of the mass ; the decline in this proportion from that of Jupiter Stator may be seen readily.

How different from the immense variety of Egyptian capitals which arose from the modification of the general p l a n o f the capital, even the introduction of the Ionic volute in the Composite order fails to add a beauty, but rather increases the deformity.

The pilasters from the Villa Medici, Nos. As specimens of modelling and drawing they have strong claims to be admired, but as ornamental accessories to the architectural features of a building they most certainly, from their excessive relief and elaborate surface treatment, are deficient in the first principle, viz.

T h e a m o u n t o f design that can be obtained by working out this principle of leaf within leaf and leaf over leaf is very limited ; and it was not till this principle of one leaf growing out of another in a continuous line was abandoned f o r the adoption o f a continuous stem throwing off ornaments on either side, that pure conventional ornament received any develop-ment.

The earliest examples of the change are found in St. Sophia at Constantinople ; and we introduce here an example front St.

Denis, where, although the s w e l l i n g a t t h e stem and the turned-back leaf at the junction of stem and s t e m h a v e entirely disappeared, the continuous stem is not yet fully developed, as it appears in the narrow border top a n d b o t t o m.

This principle became very common in the illuminated MSS. Denis, Paris. The frieze from the Arch of the Goldsmiths is, on the contrary, defective from the opposite cause.

T We h a v e n o t thought it necessary to give in this series any o f t h e painted decorations of the Romans, of which remains exist in t h e R o m a n b a t h s.

We h a d no reliable materials at command ; and, further, they are so similar to those at Pompeii, and show r a t h e r w h a t t o avoid than what to follow, that w e h a v e thought it sufficient to introduce the two subjects from the Forum of Trajan, in which figures terminating in s c r o l l s m a y b e said t o b e t h e foundation of that prominent feature in their painted decorations.

Certain as i t i s t h a t R o m e had given her peculiar style of a r t t o t h e numerous foreign peoples ranged beneath her sway, i t i s no less certain t h a t t h e h y b r i d art of her provinces had powerfully reacted o n t h e c e n t e r of civilization ; and even at t h e c l o s e of t h e t h i r d century had materially affected that lavish style of decoration which characterised the magnificent baths and other public buildings of Rome.

The necessity which Constantine found himself u n d e r, when newly settled in Byzantium, of employing Oriental artists and workmen, wrought a still more vital and marked change in t h e traditional style ; and there c a n b e l i t t l e doubt b u t t h a t each surrounding nation a i d e d in g i v i n g i t s i m p r e s s to t h e n e w l y -formed school, according t o t h e state o f i t s civilisation and its capacity for Art, u n t i l a t last the motley mass became fused into one systematic whole during the long and for Art prosperous reign of the first Justinian.

T H E vagueness with which writers on Art have treated the Byzantine and Romanesque styles of Architecture, even to within the last few years, has extended itself also to their concomitant decoration.

Sofia at Constantinople, that we could obtain any complete and definite idea of what constituted pure Byzantine ornament.

San Vitale at Ravenna, though thoroughly Byzantine a s t o its architecture, still afforded us but a very incomplete notion of Byzantine ornamentation : San Marco at Venice represented b u t a phase of the Byzantine school ; and the Cathedral of Monreale, and other examples of the same style in Sicily, served only to show the influence, but hardly to illustrate the true nature, of pure Byzantine Art : Owen Jones.

On t h e f r i e z e of the theatre at T Patara a , a n d a t t h e Temple of Venus at Aphrodisia s Caria , are to be seen examples of flowing foliage such as we allude to.

Placing on o n e s i d e t h e question of how far Byzantine workmen or artists were employed in Europe, t h e r e c a n b e no possible doubt that the character of the Byzantine school of ornament is very strongly impressed on all the earlier works of central and even Western Europe, which are generically termed Romanesque.

Pure Byzantine ornament is distinguished by broad-toothed and acute-pointed leaves, which in springings of the teeth w i t h d e e p holes ; the running foliage is generally thin and continuous, as at Nos.

The ground, whether in mosaic or painted work, is almost universally gold ; t h i n i n t e r l a c e d patterns are preferred to g e o m e t r i c a l d e s i g n s.

The introduction of animal or o t h e r f i g u r e s is very limited in sculpture, and in colour is confined principally to holy subjects, in a stiff, conventional style, exhibiting little variety or feeling ; sculpture f in the accompanying example from Sta.

Sofia f ; and at a later period, i. Romanesque ornament, o n t h e other hand, depended mainly on sculpture for effect : i t i s rich in light and shade, deep cuttings, massive projections, a n d a great intermixture of figure-subjects of every kind with foliage and conventional ornament.

The place of mosaic work is generally supplied by paint ; in coloured ornament, animals are as freely introduced as in sculpture, vide No.

Interesting and instructive as i t i s t o trace the derivation of these forms in the Byzantine style, it is no less so to m a r k t h e transmission of them a n d o f others t o l a t e r epochs.

Sofia, as seen at Nos. Some are more markedly Byzantine, however, as No. The pavements of the Romanesque churches in I t a l y are rich in examples of this class; the tradition of which was handed down from the Augustan age of Rome ; a good idea of the nature of this ornament is given in Nos.

Local styles, on the system of marble inlay, existed in several parts of Italy during the Romanesque period, which bear little relation either to Roman or Byzantine models.

Such is No. Important as we perceive the influence of Byzantine Art to have been in Europe, from the sixth to the eleventh century, and still later, there is no people whom it affected more than t h e g r e a t and spreading Arab race, who propagated the creed of Mahomet, conquered the finest countries of the East, and finally obtained a footing even in Europe.

In the earlier buildings executed by them at Cairo, Alexandria, Jerusalem, Cordova, and Sicily, the influence of the Byzantine style is very strongly marked.

The traditions o f t h e Byzantine school affected more o r l e s s all the adjacent countries ; in Greece they remained almost unchanged to a v e r y late period, and they have served, in a great degree, as the basis to all decorative art in t h e E a s t and in Eastern Europe.

The a r t o f Byzantium already displays an Asiatic influence. The ornament we engrave here from Sta. Sophia would oftentimes most ingenious, decoration for c l o s e inspection.

Generally there w a s m o r e variety in their surface treatment ; the feathering which forms so prominent a f e a t u r e o n the ornaments on seem to be one of the earliest examples of the change.

T h e u p r i g h t patterns on this Plate, chiefly from the soffits of windows, and therefore having all an upright tendency in their lines , may be considered as the g e r m s o f a l l those exquisitely-designed patterns of t h i s c l a s s , where the r e p e t i t i o n o f the s a m e p a t t e r n s s i d e b y s i d e produces another or several others.

Generally, the main differences that exist b e t w e e n t h e Arabian a n d M o r e s q u e styles may be summed u p t h u s , the constructive features of t h e A r a b s possess more grandeur, and those o f t h e Moors more refinement and elegance.

The progress which the style h a d m a d e in this period may be s e e n a t a glance. To exhibit clearly the difference, we r e p e a t t h e Arabian ornament, N o.

No better idea c a n b e obtained of what style in o r n a m e n t consists than by comparing the mosaics on P l a t e X X X V. There is scarcely a form to be found in a n y o n e which does n o t e x i s t in all the others.

From the Tomb of Sultan Soliman I. From a Fountain at Tophana, Constantinople. T H E architecture of t h e T u r k s , as s e e n a t Constantinople, is in all its structural features mainly based upon the early Byzantine monuments ; their system of ornamentation, however, i s a modification of the Arabian, bearing about the same relation to this style as Elizabethan ornament does to Italian Renaissance.

When t h e a r t of one p e o p l e i s adopted b y a n o t h e r having the same religion, but differing in natural character and instincts, we should expect to find a deficiency in all those qualities in which the borrowing people are inferior to their predecessors.

We are, however, inclined to believe t h a t t h e Turks have rarely themselves practised the arts ; but that t h e y h a v e r a t h e r c o m m a n d e d the execution than been themselves executants.

On t h e s a m e buildings, side by side with ornaments derived from Arabian and Persian floral ornaments, we find debased Roman and Renaissance details, leading to the belief that these buildings have mostly been executed by artists differing in religion from themselves.

In more recent times, the Turks have been the first of the Mohammedan Owen Jones. The only examples we have of perfect ornamentation are t o b e found i n T u r k e y carpets ; but The productions of the T u r k s a t t h e Great Exhibition of w e r e t h e least perfect of all the Mohammedan exhibiting nations.

The d e s i g n s a r e thoroughly Arabian, differing from Persian carpets in being much more conventional i n t h e treatment In Mr.

The general principles of the distribution of form are t h e s a m e , but there are a few minor differences that it will be desirable to point out.

The surface of an ornament both i n t h e Arabian and Moresque styles is only slightly rounded, and the enrichment of the surface is obtained by sinking lines on this surface ; or where the surface was left plain, the additional pattern upon pattern was obtained by painting.

The Turkish ornament, o n t h e contrary, presents a carved surface, and such ornaments as we find p a i n t e d i n the A r a b i a n M S S.

Another peculiarity, a n d o n e w h i c h a t once distinguishes a p i e c e o f Turkish ornament from Arabian, is the great abuse which was made of the re-entering curve A A.

This is very prominent i n t h e Arabian, but more especially in the Persian styles. With the Moors it is no longer a feature, and appears only exceptionally.

This peculiarity was adopted i n t h e Elizabethan ornament, which, through the Renaissance of France and Italy, was derived from the East, in imitation of the damascened work which was at that period so common.

It is very difficult, nay, almost impossible, thoroughly to explain by words differences in style of A ornament having such a strong family resemblance as the Persian, Arabian, and Turkish ; yet the eye Turkish.

The general principles remaining the same in the Persian, the Arabian, and the Turkish styles of ornament, there will be found a peculiarity in the proportions of the masses, more or less grace in the flowing of the curves, a fondness for particular directions i n t h e leading lines, and a peculiar mode of interweaving forms, the general form of the conventional leafage ever remaining the same.

The relative degree of fancy, delicacy, or coarseness, with which these are drawn, will at once distinguish them as the works of the refined and spiritual Persian, the not less refined but reflective Arabian, or the unimaginative Turk.

One great feature of Turkish ornament is the predominance of green and black ; and, in fact, i n t h e modern decoration of Cairo the same thing is observed.

Green is much more prominent than in ancient examples where blue is chiefly used. Plaster Ornaments, used as upright and horizontal Bands enclosing Panels on the walls.

O U R illustrations of the ornament of the Moors have been taken exclusively from the Alhambra, not only because i t i s t h e o n e of their works with which we are best acquainted, but also because it i s t h e o n e i n w h i c h t h e i r marvellous system of decoration reached its culminating p o i n t.

The Alhambra is at the very summit of perfection of Moorish art, as is the Parthenon of Greek art. We can find no work so f i t t e d t o illustrate a G r a m m a r of Ornament a s t h a t i n which every ornament contains a grammar in itself.
