About This Arch

Venice was a city state during the Middle Ages and Renaissance that was considered to have been the world’s first international financial center. It acted as the gateway between Europe and the rest of the world. The wealth created during this time made it a center of art and left behind a beautiful city on water. Venice’s architecture was influenced by mainland Italy as well as its trading partners from Spain to Constantinople.

Venetian Gothic is characterized by intricate facades with many windows each with a pointed arch such as the Lancet Pointed Arch, the Ogee Arch, or the Trefoil Arch.  Facades often include quatrefoils and interlaced arches. The Doge’s Palace and the Ca’ d’Oro are both great examples of Venetian Gothic architecture. The city also has several Renaissance and Baroque buildings.

The Arch Series

Arches were first used to construct underground tunnels, drainage systems, and to span over windows and doorways. These arches could only support small openings as ancient walls were extremely heavy. Pointed arches were different. They allowed for thinner walls to be constructed due to vertical structural loads being carried more efficiently to the ground. Lighter walls meant more windows that could be taller and wider. Indoor spaces subsequently changed from being very dark to very bright. Arches became more decorative over time as structural concerns were easier to overcome. The thirty-two arches in this collections span thousands of years on all continents. You can easily find several types of arch walking around any major city. Arches provided an essential stepping stone in creating the world we live in today.
