Summary
"Steeped in history and tradition, artistic expression in the Arab world and Iran is experiencing a renaissance of its very own. Domestic patronage is flourishing and an array of new museums and art fairs across the region is helping to stimulate international interest in an increasingly noticeable movement. Art of the Middle East is a unique and comprehensive survey of modern and contemporary art of the Arab world and Iran from the mid-1950s to the present day." "This landmark publication begins with a highly informative introduction to the subject. The book is then divided into seven themed sections - including sacred scripture; music and performance; and politics, conflict and war - in which extended captions provide an engaging commentary on each work and the artist behind its creation, while also placing it in a wider context. Complete with more than 450 colour illustrations, a guide to Arabic script and biographies of the 200-plus featured artists, Art of the Middle East is a timely and fascinating guide to a body of work that is at once exciting, challenging - and utterly captivating." --Book Jacket
