ISLAMIC CHINOISERIE THE ART OF MONGOL IRAN PDF

The Mongol invasion in the thirteenth century marked a new phase in the development of Islamic art. Trans-Eurasian exchanges of goods, people and ideas were encouraged on a large scale under the auspices of the Pax Mongolica. With the fascination of portable objects brought from China and Central Asia, a distinctive, hitherto unknown style-Islamic chinoiserie-was born in the art of Iran. Highly illustrated, Islamic Chinoiserie offers a fascinating glimpse into the artistic interaction between Iran and China under the Mongols. By using rich visual materials from various media of decorative and pictorial arts-textiles, ceramics, metalwork and manuscript painting-the book illustrates the process of adoption and adaptation of Chinese themes in the art of Mongol-ruled Iran in a visually compelling way. The observation of this unique artistic phenomenon serves to promote the understanding of the artistic diversity of Islamic art in the Middle Ages.

The observation of this unique artistic phenomenon serves to promote the understanding of the artistic diversity of Islamic art in the Middle Ages. Edinburgh Studies in Islamic Art is a new venture that offers readers easy access to the most up-to-date research across the whole range of Islamic art. Building on the long and distinguished tradition of Edinburgh University Press in publishing books on the Islamic world, it is intended to be a forum for studies that, while closely focused, also open wide horizons.

Books in the series will, for example, concentrate in an accessible way on the art of a single century, dynasty or geographical area; on the meaning of works of art; on a given medium in a restricted time frame; or on analyses of key works in their wider contexts.

A balance will be maintained as far as possible between successive titles, so that various parts of the Islamic world and various media and approaches are represented. Books in the series are academic monographs of intellectual distinction that mark a significant advance in the field.

While they are naturally aimed at an advanced and graduate academic audience, a complementary target readership is the worldwide community of specialists in Islamic art — professionals who work in universities, research institutes, auction houses and museums — as well as that elusive character, the interested general reader.

Islamic Chinoiserie: The Art of Mongol Iran

Author: Yuka Kadoi. It has long been accepted that the formation of the Mongol Empire by Chinggis Khan at the beginning of the thirteenth century was one of the defining moments in world history. The Mongol Empire was the largest contiguous land empire in history, connecting the two edges of the Eurasian land mass under a single political authority. The Mongol rulers favoured interregional long distance trade at the expense of agriculture, and introduced new techniques of politics, law, and warfare in the places where they were in power. After more than two centuries of scholarship on the Mongol Empire, we now have a fairly sophisticated understanding of the empire itself and of its organization, but we still know very little about the Mongol legacy in the regions where they ruled in the late medieval and early modern periods.

Islamic Chinoiserie Yuka Kadoi. Edinburgh, Edinburgh University Press, , p. However an overview of the phenomenon has yet to be made. Articles by Nancy Shatzman Steinhardt on the copy Chinese paintings by medieval central Asian artists are an excellent example of the minute inquires needed at the level of individual objects before any overview can be made. The multi-cultural education of researchers and a team approach are the keys to accessing sources originating in eastern and western Asia. Yuka Kadoi, now at the Art Institute of Chicago, has accomplished this work due to her double background in Chinese and Islamic studies.
