Focillon applies this to medieval art - principally architecture - with formidable learning and range. He seems familiar with just about any considerable church in Europe. Even if you disagree with the theme he throws interesting light on many aspects of Romanesque and Gothic art and architecture; the more of the building you have seen the more interesting it gets.

Valuable insight into the nature of Romanesque art is found in the articles On the Aesthetic Attitude in Romanesque Art (1947), and On Geometrical Schematism in Romanesque Art (1932–1933; only in German until 1977). His critique of the law of the frame (Focillon 1980) is found in the essay on geometrical schematism.
