This handsome work comprehensively summarizes the art, culture, and history of the Armenian people in pictorial and textual terms. Depicting the origin and evolution of Armenian civilization from the 6th century B.C. to the 18th century, it explains the unique qualities of the art as well as the foreign influences absorbed and transformed by the Armenians, whose best works were architecture, sculpture, illuminated manuscripts, and crafts. The book is chronologically arranged, with genealogy tables, glossary, chronology, plans, and diagrams following the illustrated essays; 960 illustrations (many in color) are interspersed throughout. The text, translated from the French Les arts armeniens (1987), is at times tortuous and contradictory, but the facts are solid and well organized. Recommended for ethnic, art history, or cultural collections.
