Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Private UK collection, London.

    Bearing testimony to the enduring influence of the Islamic tradition of carved masonry in Spain, this distinctive column capital displays a precision of form evolved over centuries evincing a stylisation of classical shapes, rhythmic patterning and naturalistic details.

    Clearly influenced by earlier Nasrid examples – with a simplified form adorned with an elegant lotus leaf – this capital illustrates how the Muslim rulers of al-Andalus shaped an architectural vocabulary of Hispano-Roman and Visigothic architecture.
