This paper discusses the various periods and works in art history. The paper explains that the Gothic and early renaissance periods represented periods of rebirth in art. The paper looks at why one of the permanent sources of art is nature. The paper then analyzes the "Labors of the Months", which according to several historians, made its first impact in classical iconography as early as 800 or the 9th century AD.

From the Paper:

"The representations of the labors of the months are found in two Anglo-Saxon manuscripts. Both are written in the 11th century, although one dates in the first half of the century and the other in the second half, which might explain the influence of the Norman invasion along the way. One was created in Canterbury, while another was made in Winchester. All the representations for the months are common between the two, except for the three months of summer, June, July and August, where the same activities (cutting wood, mowing and reaping) are placed in different months depending on the manuscript."
