Beauty and Islam aesthetics in Islamic art and architecture by Valérie Gonzalez ( )
11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This illustrated volume explores aspects of aesthetics in classical Islamic thought set in the context of contemporary theories. Valerie Gonzalez offers new perspectives on Islamic art and architecture with examples ranging from the Qur'an and the Alhambra to the works of present-day artists and philosophers." "Tracing the roots of Islamic aesthetics back to the works of great philosophers of the Middle Ages such as Ibn Sina (Avicenna) and Ibn Rushd (Averroes), Gonzalez shows that aesthetic theory in Islam belongs within the wider context of medieval thinking on theology, ethics, physics and metaphysics." "In Gonzalez's analysis, an investigation of the famous optical illusion in the Qur'anic story of King Solomon and the queen of Sheba reveals an aesthetic metaphor. Her exploration of the geometrical decorative configurations of the Alhambra provides a new interpretation based upon current theories of phenomenology and semiotics." "This work brings fresh insights to its subject by considering traditional Islamic architecture, miniatures and ceramics alongside the works of modern artists such as Frank Stella, Mark Rothko and Edward Ruscha."--BOOK JACKET

Le verset 44 de la sourate 27 du Coran raconte comment la reine de Saba se convertit à la religion de Salomon après avoir été abusée par un dallage de verre qu'elle avait pris pour de l'eau. V. Gonzalez veut montrer que ce verset est une parabole fondée sur une métaphore esthétique et que sa sémantique a une fonction cognitive de type esthétique
