Thoroughly surveying the largely neglected legacy of the Muslim presence in Spain, this outstanding catalogue documents some 140 works (including ivory carvings, ceramics, textiles, metalwork, manuscripts, coins and jewelry) representing the sophisticated court arts developed during the reign of Islamic dynasties on the Iberian peninsula from the 8th to the 15th century, while also highlighting such architectural monuments as the Great Mosque of Cordoba and the Alhambra. Features scholarly commentaries on the exhibited works and 16 texts that chronicle the achievements of individual dynasties and discuss the relationship between artists and their aristocratic patrons, developments in the production of ceramics, textiles and manuscripts, the palaces and gardens of the Alhambra, and the architectural heritage of Islamic Spain in North Africa.
