Hello Pierre,

I should probably entitle the thread differently.
I didn't want to mean that the spanish (european) renaissance had such an influence on the XIXth c. rugs in south caucasus of course! I used the european renaissance as a chronology reference only.
In another hand, during the XVIth c. Spain was the most powerful country in Europe and maybe in the world...

You can also note the progressive disappearance of the classical bestiary in painting. The knowledge is now diffusing due to the progress of books printing since Gutenberg. Universities and library are now beginning to rise in Europe (1500).
