Synopsis

This second volume of Basil Gray's studies covers his work on Chinese ceramics and on Islamic art. Appropriately, Chinese ceramics proved the most potent medium in introducing Islamic artists to the motifs of Chinese painting, in view of their wide popularity in the Middle East. The articles on Islamic art were written over a period of forty years. Early studies on Persian manuscript painting of the Mongol period are followed by papers on Turkish and Indian manuscript illumination, and general studies on Chinese influence in Persian painting, and on textiles and glass. Contents: Preface The Influence of Near Eastern Metalwork on Chinese Ceramics Persian Influence on Chinese Art from the 8th to the 15th Centuries Blue and White Vessels in Persian Miniatures of the 14th and 15th Centuries Re-examined Chinese Porcelain of the Fourteenth Century: I.
