Description

By Navina Najat Haidar and Kendra Weisbin

The Metropolitan Museum's superlative collection of Islamic art, consisting of works ranging in date from the dawn of Islam in the seventh century to the nineteenth century, reflects a great diversity of artistic and cultural traditions. This informative publication offers several thematic "visits" to help readers locate, understand, and appreciate many of the most important and magnificent works of art found in the recently reopened galleries for the Art of the Arab Lands, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia, and Later South Asia.

Each of the four thematic tours detailed in this volume offers a different approach to the art on view in the galleries. The tours are titled: Tracing the Course of Islamic Civilization, Dimensions of Islamic Faith and Practice, The Royal Arts, and Interconnections and Cultural Exchange.

This handy book is intended to be used in the galleries, at home to plan for future or return visits, or as an illustrated introduction to the beauty and scope of remarkable works created by artists working in an Islamic context.
