Book Description New York : The Museum, 1987. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 160 pages, [2] folded leaves of plates : color illustrations, map ; 31 cm. "In this volume, over 140 objects and pictures are reproduced, giving a sweeping view of the many styles and mediums in which Islamic artists worked, from Spain to India, over more than ten centuries. Pages from Korans, epic poems, poetic anthologies, and albums, as well as glasswork, jewelry, and stone and woodcarving show the rich variety of Islamic art. A room from Damascus, created in the eighteenth century, reveals the exquisite craftsmanship for which Islamic architects, woodcarvers, and ceramists are justly famous. Example of the various calligraphic styles are shown, Islamic glass and ceramics, beautiful and critically important in the development of these mediums in the West, are illustrated by examples from every corner of the Muslim world, while carpets are profusely illustrated by examples from Egypt, Turkey, Iran, and India. Together, the paintings and objects reproduced here offer a richly rewarding aesthetic adventure and a revealing picture of the variety and brilliance of over ten centuries of artistic achievement."--Pages [2 and 3] of cover.
