Il Gotico / Tirolo

Un profondo legame unisce il Tirolo allo stile gotico: il singolare corrispondere della nascita di questa regione come entità politica nel corso del XIII secolo con l'affermarsi in campo artistico delle nuove forme slanciate che suggeriscono il movimento, introdotte dal gotico. Il nuovo stile si radica con realizzazioni artistiche che non mancano di caratterizzazioni locali rispetto al  ...

The Umayyads

The Rise of Islamic Art

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 ...

Genèse de l'Art Ottoman

L'Héritage des Émirs

L'apogée du règne de Soliman a longtemps occulté les bouleversements fondateurs introduits en Anatolie par les précurseurs de l'empire. Parmi ces premiers émirats turcs qui profitent de l'affaiblissement de l'empire byzantin pour s'établir dans la Péninsule, la dynastie ottomane allait bien sûr connaître la plus célèbre destinée. Mais la suprématie architecturale et artistiq ...
