Art Of Spain - 02 Dark Heart »

Description

From docuwiki

Art Of Spain, three 60-minute programmes for BBC Four, broadcast in early 2008, celebrates the astonishing influence of Spain on European art.

Travelling from the unique Muslim contribution in the medieval south, through the golden age of El Greco and Velasquez in the heart of Spain, to the modern art of Picasso and Dali in the north, the series tells the story of some of Europe's most exiting and vital art.

Presenter Andrew Graham-Dixon immerses himself in true Spanish culture and meets the people who live and work with this artistic legacy.

Episode One

The Moorish South

In an exploration of Moorish Spain, he looks at Muslim political and cultural influence as he travels from Cordoba to Granada, seeing classic buildings such as the Great Mosque in Cordoba, the Alcazar in Seville and the Alhambra in Granada. He also shows how the Moors introduced new foods – including citrus fruits, coffee and spices – to Spain.
