Islamic Art in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has a New Guide. Edited by Sheila R. Canby and Navina Najat Haidar.


A Walking Guide. The Islamic Art Galleries at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York

The museum’s superlative collection of Islamic art, from the Arab Lands, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia and Later South Asia, ranges in date from the 7th to the 19th century and reflects the diversity and scope of Islamic cultures and the richness of their artistic traditions. This guide to the Islamic collection is organised into four thematic tours:

• Tracing the Course of Islamic Civilisation

• Dimensions of Islamic Faith and Practice

• The Royal Arts

• Interconnections and Cultural Exchange

Islamic Art is the fourth title in Scala’s series of Walking Guides published for the Metropolitan Museum.

This handy and affordable book can be used to plan a forthcoming visit, or can serve as an on-the-spot walking guide through the gallery or as an elegant souvenir. It offers colour-coded maps, gallery numbers, and illuminating descriptions to help visitors locate, understand and appreciate the works of art.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!


£6.50 / $9.95. 80 pages; paperback. 90 colour. 197 mm x 110 mm. ISBN: 978 1 85759 827 8.
