Romanesque

A medieval art style in Europe between 900–1200. Romanesque art reaches its peak in central and northern France. Which is why the English start calling it ‘Norman Art’ instead (See: Oxford Dictionaries).

Romanesque art evolves from art styles in the Roman and Byzantine empires with large buildings with round arches massive vaults, columns with plant decorations often seen in Scandinavian and Islamic art, and small windows (See: Oxford Dictionaries and Victoria & Albert Museum).
