When we hear or read the word Gothic, we often think of the modern interpretations that have pervaded popular culture. However, Gothic building style has a deep and massive history wiRead moreth the Basilica of Saint Denis in the suburb of Paris being the first major structure of which a substantial part was designed and built in this specific manner. This is also why Photowall has put together a comprehensive and beautiful collection of Gothic canvas prints in the Building Styles category under Architecture. Both stylistically and structurally, the building of the Basilica of Saint Denis heralded the change from the traditional Romanesque architecture to Gothic architecture. However, before the term Gothic came into common use, it was known as the "French Style". The appeal and finesse of this particular architectural feat is obvious in Gothic canvas prints, and you can use these motifs to upgrade your interior decoration from plain to extraordinary. Any residential, recreational or corporate space will benefit from having Gothic canvas prints on their walls. As per usual, you can alter your selected items in accordance with your existing interior design, colour schemes and any other decorative elements.

Explaining Gothic canvas prints

At the very heart of it, Gothic architecture grew out of Romanesque architecture in France in the 12th century. This building style spread across Europe and lasted until the 16th century when Renaissance architecture became more popular. Nonetheless, as you will see in Gothic canvas prints, many of these established structures retained the Gothic aspect. Arguably the most important single feature of this type of architecture is the pointed arch, which also happens to be the main difference from Romanesque architecture which had more rounded arches. "Gothic Archway" is the perfect example of this in Gothic canvas prints. Other important features are the ribbed vault, flying buttress and windows with patterns of stone lace called "tracery". See if you can find these in Gothic canvas prints by Photowall.
