Islam and the Religious Arts by Patricia L. Baker
Book DescriptionAimed at educationalists and students interested in the world of Islam, this work reveals something of the rich variety and diversity of the religious arts of Islam, an aspect of Islamic art which still remains misunderstood and under-researched. Rather than concentrating solely on the Middle East, it includes examples of visual expression from West Africa to South-east Asia and beyond, from the first century of Islamic history to the present day. The book draws the readers' attention to the enduring impact of 19th century Western perceptions of Islamic art as traditional and decorative, rather than as fine art. The relationship between Islamic theological opinion, the artist-maker and the object is explored in this discussion of religious artistic expression, from early Islamic calligraphy and the mosque to contemporary Iranian poster art, from prayer rugs to sufi performance
