Aula Specola

1. The Iberian background: between late-Gothic, al-Andalus, Italy and Flanders.
2. Interactions with Flanders: Jan van Eyck's travel from Flanders to Granada as a case study.
3. Indochristian art in New Spain: Palencia Cathedral altar cross as a case study.
4. Europe meets China: Chinese Christian art and cloisonné enamel as a case study.

This seminar proposes an overview about the Iberian expansion during the early globalization period and the cultural, religious and artistic interactions produced in that context.
Session 1 explores the Iberian multicultural background and the interactions between different artistic traditions or contexts such as late-Gothic, al-Andalus, Italy and Flanders.
Session 2 deepens on the interactions between the Iberian territories and Flanders during the 15th century. Jan van Eyck's travel from Flanders to Granada and its consequences is proposed as a case study.
Session 3 explores the indochristian art as a result of the interactions between Spain and local cultures in Mexico / New Spain. The altar cross kept at the Cathedral of Palencia, a hybrid and syncretic work of art, is studied as one of the most representative examples of this phenomenon.
Finally, session 4 proposes a general overview on the Iberian interactions with China and deepens on Chinese Christian art. The case study proposed is based in a new research line about the Chinese Christian cloisonné development as a result of a long process of global interactions.
