Islamic aesthetics: an introduction

Cover
Edinburgh University Press, 2004 - 211 Seiten
Is there something unique about Islamic art? Oliver Leaman challenges the argument that a special sort of consciousness went into creating Islamic art and that it is very different from other art forms. He suggests instead that the criteria we should apply to Islamic art are identical to those applicable to art in general. Islamic Aesthetics deals with issues arising in painting, calligraphy, architecture, gardens, literature, films, and music. It pays close attention to the Qur'an throughout, and includes examples from history, art, philosophy, theology and the artefacts of the Islamic world.
