In this richly illustrated book, Oleg Grabar shares a veteran art historian's love for the sheer sensuality of ornamentation. Grabar analyzes early and medieval Islamic objects and uses this art to show how ornament in general enables a direct, immediate encounter between viewers and art objects from any culture and time period.
About the Author: Oleg Grabar is Professor in the School of Historical Studies at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, and was for many years Aga Khan Professor of Islamic Art at Harvard University. His many books include The Alhambra, The Formation of Islamic Art, and The Great Mosque of Isfahan.
