Brief:‎

There came a time when Islam ruled territories that extended from western China, India, ‎Central Asia and Iran, and all the way to present-say Spain and Portugal. Characterized ‎by an exceptional ability to absorb and assimilate different cultures and art styles, ‎Islamic Art eventually became an umbrella term used to label a profusion of styles that ‎ranged from the Mughal Art to Andalusi Art: Umayyad mosaics, Fatimid lusterware, ‎Mamluk inlaid metalwork, Merinid and Nasrid zellige, Persian miniatures, Ottoman ‎tiles…to the end of the long, impressive list. ‎

This course starts with Pre-Islamic Art in the Arabian Peninsula and around, as well as ‎other art styles that helped shape the Early Islamic Art (Byzantine, Persian, Coptic, etc.). ‎It then proceeds to explore the development of a fully-fledged body of art, with a focus ‎on some of its most celebrated masterpieces. Architecture is not covered by this course.‎
