SOME REFLEXIONS ABOUT THE FRENCH AND “FRENCH-STYLE” IN ARCHITECTURE IN THE IBERIAN PENINSULA IN THE TRANSITION FROM THE MEDIAEVAL TO THE MODERN ERA
The uninterrupted circulation of artists, works and models from one side to the other of the Pyrenees throughout the Middle Ages and most part of the Modern Age, and the dynamic and dialectic relationships generated by these flows both in their places of origin and in the receiving places finally allowed the appearance of extremely rich and interesting phenomena. These episodes, result of multiple contributions, interactions and transfers, not only don’t reflect the geography of the nations of modern Europe, but also don’t seem to follow the usual stylistic taxonomies and periodizations. Trying to transcend all these coordinates, we aim to analyse the phenomenon whose protagonists were the stonemasons and cravers who crossed the Pyrenees in order to work in the Iberian Peninsula throughout the 15th and 16th centuries, paying special attention to how it was perceived by the ones who witnessed its genesis and evolution.
