Studies in Persian Art and Architecture
This volume gathers together all of the major articles published by the author between 1976 and 1994 on Persian art and architecture. Persia here is understood in its broadest historical sense to include not only modern Iran but also Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. Topics range from in-depth studies of individual monuments to an overview of Islamic Persia's architectural heritage, and from little-known aspects of Persian painting to the relationship between nomadism and Persian palace design.
The monuments and artifacts are analyzed by setting them within their historical and social context, broadening their appeal to all of those interested in the rich heritage of Islamic Persia.
