Ep.1: The Moorish South 壯麗奪目的南部 Ep.2: The Dark Heart 灰暗的中部 Ep.3: The Mystical North 神秘的北部


The Art of Spain – The Moorish South (1 of 3)  Critic and art historian Andrew Graham-Dixon travels from southern to northern Spain to tell the story of some of Europe’s most exciting and vital art. 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.  The Art of Spain – The Dark Heart (2 of 3)  He journeys to the country’s scorched centre to explore Spanish art of the 16th and 17th centuries, a period that became known as the Golden Age. Tracing the rise and fall of the Spanish Empire, the brutal conquest of the New World, and the religious madness of the Inquisition he discovers how a history so violent produced such beautiful art.  The Art of Spain – The Mystical North (3 of 3)  In the final part, he reveals how the north of the country has produced some of the most dazzling and iconic art of the modern age. Spain’s turbulent history has shaped artists from Francisco Goya to Pablo Picasso. Graham-Dixon argues that Spanish architecture is the art form now taking the nation forward in the new millennium.  我們都知道義大利和北歐因藝術而聞名遐邇,那麼西班牙又如何呢?在這部引人入勝、獨具創新的系列片中,隨著藝術史學家安德魯•格雷厄姆-迪克遜踏上展現西班牙絢爛藝術瑰寶的道路,西班牙藝術也登上了舞臺中心。從南至北,他考察了從文藝復興到中世紀時期一些歐洲最重要的藝術家-包括戈雅、畢加索、達利、格列柯貝拉斯克斯。並且,循著必經之路,他對每天工作、生活在偉大西班牙藝術和建築中的人們,以及這種文化本身表達了獨特的見解。從西班牙及歐洲的摩爾藝術和伊斯蘭遺產到現代化、從塞維利亞到巴塞隆拿、從佳餚到美酒,安德魯向人們揭示了西班牙文化和義大利文化都一樣濃郁悠久,而且還有更驚人的一面。
