"Momentous developments occurred in Islamic art during the eleventh and twelfth centuries - developments that were to affect its aesthetic direction for centuries to come, but which sprang from deep within a political and religious clash at the heart of the Muslim world." "Iran, Iraq, and Syria were to see the flourishing of proportional calligraphy, vegetal and geometric arabesque, muqarnas (stalactite) vaulting, and other devices that became defining features of medieval Islamic architecture. The forms that emerged from this period were to shape the development of Mamluk architecture both in Egypt and the Near East and, by extension, influence the entire course of North African and Andalusian architecture." "The Transformation of Islamic Art during the Sunni Revival makes original contributions to the study of art, revealing that this relatively neglected sector of medieval art and architecture is of critical importance for reevaluating the entire field of Islamic scholarship. Yasser Tabbaa, examining the semiotic interplay between history and art, challenges the conventional methodologies of many historians of Islamic art today and offers an alternative and invigorating approach to its study."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
