Flamboyant Gothic

Flamboyant Gothic. Style of Gothic architecture which came into being at the end of the 14th and beginning of the 15th centuries. It developed in similar fashion in many European countries and was characterized, especially in painting and the applied arts, by an extremely linear decorative style and a purity of color. Flamboyant Gothic may have derived from the influence of Simone Martini’s later work on French artists during his period in Avignon.
