Panorama XXL - Rouen Gothic
With the Rouen Panorama, Yadegar Asisi takes the visitor on a trip into the Gothic Era. In the Middle Ages, this French city on the Seine played a key role as an interface between the hinterland (including the capital, Paris) and the English Channel, gaining prosperity as a trading centre for imports from England and exports from the hinterland. At the same time, cloth production flourished in Normandy.
Asisi portrays the city of a “hundred church towers” (Victor Hugo) in the Late Gothic Period at the onset of modern times. Contrary to popular belief, this era is not shown as a dark and backward period, but instead as an age of upheaval, characterised by a shift towards the individual.
This Panorama presents Rouen at a time when its social and commercial life was highly differentiated and structured. The various craftsmen in their many guilds (e.g. fishermen, weavers, saddlers, clothmakers, tanners, carpenters, millers, furriers, etc.) perfectly exemplify this.
