The Grove Encyclopedia of Islamic Art & Architecture
by Jonathan M. Bloom and Sheila S. Blair




Overview -
The Grove Encyclopedia of Islamic Art and Architecture is the most comprehensive reference work in this complex and diverse area of art history. Built on the acclaimed scholarship of the Grove Dictionary of Art, this work offers over 1,600 up-to-date entries on Islamic art and architecture
ranging from the Middle East to Central and South Asia, Africa, and Europe and spans over a thousand years of history.

Recent changes in Islamic art in areas such as Afghanistan, Iran, and Iraq are elucidated here by distinguished scholars. Entries provide in-depth art historical and cultural information about dynasties, art forms, artists, architecture, rulers, monuments, archaeological sites and stylistic
developments. In addition, over 500 illustrations of sculpture, mosaic, painting, ceramics, architecture, metalwork and calligraphy illuminate the rich artistic tradition of the Islamic world. With the fundamental understanding that Islamic art is not limited to a particular region, or to a defined
period of time, The Grove Encyclopedia of Islamic Art and Architecture offers pathways into Islamic
culture through its art.
