The Islamic world has a rich artistic tradition, with particular strengths in calligraphy, illuminated manuscripts, architecture, and the decorative arts. This reference traces the development of Islamic art and architecture from the Umayyad dynasty to the present day. Readers will learn about the art of the Fatimids, Seljuqs, Mamluks, Mongols, Ottomans, Safavids, Mughals, and more. Eye-catching photos of gorgeous mosques, delicate manuscript paintings, and colorful ceramics give readers glimpses of the works being discussed. A great resource both for those interested in art history and those hoping to learn more about the long, rich history of Islamic culture.
