Virtual Lecture: Islamic Spain

Virtual Lecture: Islamic Spain

Presented by Milwaukee Art Museum at Milwaukee Art Museum

Free and open to all via Zoom

Spain’s Islamic architecture and history and post-conquest Mudéjar art inspired many tourists to travel to Spain—and the guidebooks they took with them. Join Eugenia Afinoguénova, professor and chair, Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, Marquette University, as she discusses the facts and fantasies of Islamic Spain.

This lecture is held in conjunction with the exhibition Americans in Spain: Painting and Travel, 1820–1920.
