Description
The following content was provided by the publisher. The material and visual culture of the Islamic World casts vast arcs through space and time, and encompasses a huge range of artefacts and monuments from the minute to the grandiose, from ceramic pots to the great mosques. Here, Venetia Porter and Mariam Rosser-Owen assemble leading experts in the field to examine both the objects themselves and the ways in which they reflect their historical, cultural and economic contexts. With a focus on metalwork, this volume includes an important new study of Mosul metalwork and presents recent discoveries in the fields of Fatimid, Mamluk and Qajar metalwork. By examining architecture, ceramics, ivories and textiles, seventeenth-century Iranian painting and contemporary art, the book explores a wide range of artistic production and historical periods from the Umayyad caliphate to the modern Middle East. This rich and detailed volume makes a significant contribution to the fields of Art History, Architecture, and Islamic Studies, bringing new objects to light, and shedding new light on old objects Specifications : Allan, James W. : Porter, Venetia : Rosser-Owen, Mariam Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan Publish Date: Aug 2012 ISBN-13: 9781780763231 ISBN-10: 1780763239 Format: Hardcover Number of Pages: 530 Shipping Weight (in pounds): 3.4 Product in Inches (L x W x H): 7.25
