Reinassance art in Spain

Reinassance architecture

  • Plateresque style: was used in Spain for a very short period, from 1500 to 1530. It is characteristic because it combined the Gothic art in the interior and new elements such as pinnacles and medallions.
  • Purist style: lasted from 1530 to 1560, another 30 years. It changed in the way that decorations were bigger and nearly excesive.
