Islamic architectural art in Spain and in the Maghreb
The term, "Islamic art" does not refer to the specific art of a religion, but of a culture or civilization in which the ruling class and the majority of the population professed Islam. Islamic art is not a religious art in the sense that it is Christian, Gothic or Baroque, but it means a moment or period of art history.
Islamic art has spread throughout the vast territory conquered by Muslims that extended to the west in Morocco and Spain, and east, in India and Central Asia. Islamic art lasted nearly a thousand years of artistic development from the early eighth century until its decline in the late eighteenth century, then undergoing a profound transformation under Western influence. The Islamic world is developing rapidly and is rich and varied.
Muslims have created a specific and exclusive Islamic art. It is through the juxtaposition of certain motifs, mixing shapes and juxtaposition of particular elements that an original art that is typically Islamic was born. What form is this Islamic art and what are its characteristics?
