A style of art, popular in Europe from the late 12th century to the early 16th century. It is also known as the International Style. Gothic art is mainly remembered in architecture. It was created by Abbot Sugert (Shu-ger). He planed to renovate the Cathedral of St. Denis, outside of Paris. Other famous gothic cathedrals include: Notre Dame, Chartres, Milan, and Pisa.
