Publication: 1987 ISBN 0 907132 20 0 Buckram Bound See also: Vol I This second volume of Basil Gray's studies covers his work on Chinese ceramics and on Islamic art. Appropriately, Chinese ceramics proved the most potent medium in introducing Islamic artists to the motifs of Chinese painting, in view of their wide popularity in the Middle East. The articles on Islamic art were written over a period of forty years. Early studies on Persian manuscript painting of the Mongol period are followed by papers on Turkish and Indian manuscript illumination, and general studies on Chinese influence in Persian painting, and on textiles and glass.

Basil Gray's publications on Chinese and Islamic art have done much to introduce these subjects to a European public. This first volume deals with Chinese painting and luxury art. An introductory section on Chinese art attempts to chart the aesthetic and philosophical ideas that lie at the roots of Chinese culture, and which have succeeded in dictating the development of this highly individual civilization. A second section, on Chinese painting, examines the early development of Chinese scroll painting and its subsequent influence on Japanese and European artists. The influence of Chinese painting on the earliest Western visitors to the court at Peking and on subsequent European collectors is of particular interest. The third section deals with lacquer and metalwork, and includes a number of studies which attempt to answer problems of attribution and influence.
