alicatados (mosaics (visual works), <visual works by material or technique>, ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Decorations composed of mosaics formed of polygonal, colored glazed tiles in designs of geometric patterns. They have been used mostly for paving Spanish and Moorish patios, but also for wall surfaces. The expansion of the lands under Christian control in Spain in the 13th century led to a mixture of Gothic and Islamic styles evident in alicatados. Alicatados were superceded by mosaics composed of uniform tiles in the 14th century; by the 15th century alicatados were primarily used to surround tilework. The term is Spanish and means 'cut work.'

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Verwijst meestal naar muurdecoraties die bestaan uit mozaïeken van stukken geglazuurd aardewerk in verschillende kleuren met uiteenlopende geometrische vormen. Alicatados werden populair in de 12de eeuw, maar werden snel vervangen door mozaïeken die bestonden uit eenvormige stukken. Vanaf de 15de eeuw werden alicatados voornamelijk gebruikt ter omlijsting van tegelwerk. De term is Spaans en betekent 'snijwerk'. 
German ..... Aus einem Mosaik zusammengesetzte Dekoration, die aus vieleckigen, farbigen Fliesen mit geometrischen Mustern gebildet ist. Sie wurde meist zum Pflastern von spanischen und maurischen Innenhöfen verwendet, aber auch für Wandflächen. Die Ausdehnung der Länder unter christlicher Herrschaft in Spanien im 13. Jahrhundert führte zu einer Vermischung von gotischen und islamischen Stilen, die in den Alicatados offensichlich werden. An die Stelle der Alicatados traten im 14. Jahrhundert Mosaiken, die aus gleichmäßigen Fliesen zusammengesetzt waren; ab dem 15. Jahrhundert wurden Alicatados hauptsächlich verwendet, um Fliesenarbeiten einzufassen. Der Begriff ist spanisch und bedeuted "Schnittwerk".
