Medieval isnt really a very professional way to describe an art period, but may surely be elaborated. I think, the ideal would be to elaborate the "by style" categories, but there are various forms being started....?

I dont know what may be the best way to organise Early Medieval art by style, but the most consistent would be a "Pre-Romanesque art" by country and the various local styles in addition (but preferably not by country): Merovingian, Carolingian, Lombard, Visgothic, etc...

I think those local styles should not be broken further into "by country" categories, as that would just make navigation worse. If a local style can be boxed down into one country, (like Lombard into Italy), the local style may not need to be in the parent "Medieval art", but in "Medieval art in Italy" only? If a local style is found in more than one modern country, the style may want to be categorised in "Medieval art".

Another issue is "Frankish art" - even though commonly used as a term - would be jet another (parallel) category? --ZH2010 (talk) 16:18, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
