AH 249 - Spanish Art and Architecture

This course provides an introduction to the history of Spanish architecture and painting, from the Middle Ages up to modern times. It will  deal with the main creations of Spanish art taking into account the historical circumstances in which they were produced. As well as discovering the cultural and historical background of each period, students will learn how to look at a building or a painting from its own point of view, analyzing its style, its own visual and spatial language. Emphasis will be placed on the great examples of Spanish painting and architecture: from masterpieces like the Mezquita of Córdoba and the Alhambra in Granada to architects such as Gaudí, Moneo and Miralles, and from El Greco, Velázquez and Goya to Picasso and Dalí.
