I Spain," Professor Aga-Ogiu pointed
out yesterday in an illustrated lec-
ture on "Islamic Art in Spain" de-
livered in Alumni Memorial Hall.'
Professor Aga-Oglu, who himself is
a Turk, is a member of the Univer-
sity 's Institute of Fine Arts.
He began the lecture, which was
sponsored by the Research Seminar;
in Islamic Art in Spain, by outlining
the historic development of Islamic
art in Spain. He explained how the
Arabs conquered Spain~ and estab-
lished an artistic culture different;
from that of the Near-Eastern coun-
tries of Islam. Slides were shown
depicting the Alhambra and Alcazar
in the whole and also showing sec-
tions so that the delicate and minute
decorations would be clearly per-
"The Alhambra is an ornament in
itself. It is not an architectural
wonder but a decorative one," he ex-
plained further. The Alcazar is a
true example of this art, yet in com-
parison with the Alhambra it shows
the beginning of decay. The western'
elements of the beginning of the
Renaissance are introduced into it.
