Early Ottoman Art

Legacy of the Emirates

The apogee of Soliman's reign has for a long time obscured the various seminal disruptions brought into Anatolia by the precursors of the empire. Amongst these were the first Turkish emirates who took advantage of an ebbing Byzantine empire in order to establish themselves in the peninsula. The Ottoman dynasty would of course have the most celebrated destiny, but the architectural, artis ...

الأمويون

نشأة الفن الإسلامي

Far from abolishing the freedom of local cults and undermining existing town plans, The Umayyads acknowledged the aesthetic language already in place on their arrival in Jordan (661), and re-invented its forms with an astonishing freedom of expression. Brief as their hegemony was (less than 90 years) the role of the Umayyad caliphs remains crucial in the history of Islam. By establishing ...

Barock & Rokoko (Bayern Süd)

Baroque & Rococo

Die Sinne schwelgen zu lassen war das Ziel der barocken Kunst. Mit Hilfe prunkvollster Interieurs wurde in Kirchen und Schlössern jedermann die Herrlichkeit göttlicher und weltlicher Ordnung vor Augen geführt. Und welches Land wäre besser dazu geeignet, den barocken Rausch der Sinne nachzuerleben, als Bayern, das wie kein zweites so nachhaltig durch die Barockzeit geprägt wurde, man ...

Austria (Tyrol)

Barocco & Rococò / Tirolo

Come in gran parte d'Europa, anche in Tirolo il Barocco giunse sull'onda dell'impegno controriformistico della Chiesa seguito al Concilio di Trento (1545-63), volto a rinnovare l'immagine del cattolicesimo. Ruolo fondamentale nella diffusione in questa regione retta da signoria propria fino al 1665, quando passò a far parte dell'Impero austriaco, fu svolto dalla Compagnia di Gesù fonda ...

Portugal

Portugal es una tierra propicia a saludables reconsideraciones, un lugar ideal para librarse de ciertos tópicos funestos: en la península ibérica, por ejemplo, la primera gran ruptura de una civilización tuvo lugar no a principios del siglo VIII –un periodo asociado tradicionalmente a una de las mayores “invasiones” árabes–, sino más bien durante la “reconquista” cristi ...
