Abstract

This chapter explores two of the most representative media of artistic production on the island of Crete during the long and prolific period of its Venetian-domination (1211-1669). It assesses their relevant peaks viewed against the backdrop of the fall of Constantinople in 1453, how they relate to each other, and how their combined study (not previously attemped) can offer us a more complete view on Venetian-dominated Cretan art and society.
