In this introductory course on the art of the Arab World we will explore the schools, the movements and the artistic practices that have characterised the period between the 19th century and the present. The greatest emphasis will be put on the most acclaimed artistic personalities, whose life and artistic production will be analysed against the historical and political background of their native countries. The link with traditional Islamic art and the role played by calligraphy and European art in their practices will be also considered.
