A comprehensive survey on Islamic geometry in modern and contemporary art.
In a groundbreaking volume about the use of Islamic geometry in modern and contemporary art from the region, Middle East art expert and Sothebys Deputy Chairman Roxane Zand, and Dr Sussan Babaie professor of Islamic arts at the Courtauld Institute of Art of the University of London, explore ways in which traditional geometric legacies are applied and interpreted in new contexts.
Dr Babaie’s scholarly essay traces the significance of geometry in the history of Islamic arts, looking at the emergence of modernisms of the Middle East through the prism of selected works by twenty artists and their multidisciplinary practices.
Their works underscore the distinctive ways geometry, a universal heritage, has inspired the art of the region. Lavishly illustrated and bound, the book is aimed at both the general user and those with academic interest.
I already have the Olive Wood cross but have mislaid it. I love the calmness and peace stroking the wood gives me. The keyring is a perfect way to always have it with you. I will definitely be buying more to give out as gifts.
Great service and products as always.
