Central to the Foundation’s grant and fellowship programs is the Foundation’s mission-driven commitment to making the fruits of its funding programs as broadly accessible as possible. To that end, the Foundation strongly urges its grantees and fellowship administrators to help diversify the next generation of art historians, art conservators, and art museum professionals by adopting an inclusive approach to all Kress-sponsored partnerships and educational and training opportunities. Similarly, the Foundation strongly encourages the adoption of sustained, open access approaches to the dissemination of Kress-funded resources that support education, research, and scholarship. For the latter, please read the Conditions of Kress Foundation Awards .
Section 14: Gothic: Paris to Padua
The Gothic era is captured in architectural images beginning with Saint Denis in Paris, taking flight at Chartres and Sainte-Chapelle, and spreading across Europe to Italy, Germany, and Great Britain. Architectural sculpture and stained glass are documented along with ivories and reliquaries. The associated arts – illumination, as practiced by Jean Pucelle – and tapestry – the Angers Apocalypse by Nicolas Bataille – are also included. The seminal developments of Italian painting, innovations of Cimabue, Duccio, Giotto, and Lorenzetti provide the foundation for Renaissance artists.
