Mohammed Hamdouni Alami argues that Islamic art has historically been excluded from Western notions of art; that the Western aesthetic tradition's preoccupation with the human body, and the ban on the representation of the human body in Islam, has meant that Islamic and Western art have been perceived as inherently at odds. However, the move away from this 'anthropomorphic aesthetic' in Western art movements, such as modern abstract and constructivist painting, have presented the opportunity for new ways of viewing and evaluating Islamic art and architecture. This book questions the very idea of art predicated on the anthropocentric bias of classical art, and the corollary 'exclusion' of Islamic art from the status of art.
Abby M. This course surveys the foundations of Islamic art and architecture in the Middle East and then traces these artistic forms across the Mediterranean and into Central Asia. We will work our way from the seventh through the sixteenth centuries, studying everything from mosques to palaces, from holy texts to vividly depicted tales of love, friendship, and behavior, from shimmering mosaics to stuccoed vaults. Class discussion will be focused on the making, meanings, and social resonances of Islamic art. In addition, we will focus on the presentation and collection of Islamic art in Western museums, and the influence of Islam on the intellectual and cultural life of the West.

Inspired by Ettinghausen and Grabar's original text, this book has been completely rewritten and updated to take into account recent informa- tion and methodological advances. The volume focuses special attention on the development of numerous regional centres of art in Spain, North Africa, Egypt, Syria, Anatolia, Iraq and Yemen as well as the western and northeastern provinces of Iran. It traces the cultural and artistic evolution of such centres in the seminal early Islamic period and examines the wealth of different ways of creating a beautiful environment. The book approaches the arts with new classifications of architecture and architectural decoration, the art of the object and the art of the book. With many new illustrations, often in colour, this volume broadens the picture of Islamic artistic production and discusses objects in a wide range of media, including textiles, ceram- ics, metal and wood.
important outlets for artistic expression in the Islamic world were: architecture. - the arts of the book (calligraphy, manuscript illumination, and bookbinding).
