During the middle ages, art evolved throughout a period known as the Medieval Art era. The history and development of art throughout this period started with the fall of the Roman Empire in 300 AD and continued until the start of the Renaissance period in 1400 AD. Having lasted for over 1000 years, Medieval Art encompasses several styles and genres, including fine art paintings, sculpture, metalwork, frescoes and architecture.
