Beyond orientalism : how the West was won over by Islamic art by Lucien De Guise( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Global interest in the Islamic world has reached a high point in recent years. At the same time, the influence of Islamic art on the world has declined. This was not always the case. In the past, both Europe and America were inspired by what was then called the 'Orient' and its artistic output. Western painters travelled extensively in the Middle East and India, recording their views of a region that was irresistible to Victorians with a sense of romance. The exhibition 'Beyond Orientalism: How the West was Won over by Islamic art' looks further than Orientalist art. Instead of being about how European and American artists depicted the Islamic world, it shows how the Islamic world changed aesthetics in the West. The aim of the exhibition is to put artefacts from the collection of the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia alongside the works they inspired. Beyond Orientalism explores a world in which creative inspiration flowed in all directions and the eyes of the West were open to the beauty of Islamic culture. -- Publisher description

Divine inspiration : seven principles of Islamic architecture by Nisreen Moustafa( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Divine Inspiration – Seven Principles of Islamic Architecture explores the relationship between Muslims and their beliefs, manifested in the built environment. Just as Islam embodies a way of life and serves as a cohesive force amongst ethnically and culturally diverse peoples, it also contains a conspicuous aesthetic dimension. There is no essential difference between sacred and secular art in Islam. This allows Islamic architecture to symbolise the spiritual path of the religion, transcending the temporal considerations of form and function. Through the study of seven key religious beliefs, a cross-section of Islamic life and practice is united with the corresponding architectural principles. By integrating religion into all facets of life, and life itself into the rhythms and patterns of its values, Islam manages to create a sense of unity that is reflected in architecture that has been consistently and universally admired

Neither east nor west : the Lafayette collection : Asia in the age of monochrome by Lucien De Guise( Book )

Lasting impressions : seals from the Islamic world by Annabel Teh Gallop( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Islamic seals were the namecards of their day. In early Islamic societies a seal presented the image a person wished to project to the world, yet often conveyed much more than was written or perhaps intended. A seal inscribed simply with the name of the owner and a pious phrase might also reveal when and where that person lived, their social status and aspirations, and their religious beliefs. While the calligraphy and design of a seal reflected the artistic spirit of its time and place, it could also be shaped by personal taste, whether cutting-edge or conservative. Presented in this book are over 300 Islamic seals, dating from the earliest days of Islam through to the modern era. They include both matrices made of precious stone and metal, and impressions stamped on manuscript documents and books, mainly from the collections of the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia, the British Library and the British Museum. Unlike European seals which are primarily pictorial, in Islamic seals the inscription takes centre stage. It is this focus on writing, in the sacred Arabic script, which links seals from all parts of the Muslim world, from Morocco to Malaysia, and from Iran to India and Indonesia. Masterworks in miniature, each of these seals leaves lasting impressions of the people who commissioned and used them, and the Islamic worlds in which they were created
Abrbandi : Ikats of Central Asia : from the collection of the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia by Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication from the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia accompanies the first exhibition of its type in Southeast Asia. Silk ikats are among the most vibrant textiles of Central Asia. Part of the weaving tradition known in Persian as abrbandi they are as stunning to look at as they are challenging to make. The legacy created in the 19th century continues to inspire, many decades after it ceased to be a part of the Central Asian way of life. Its influence has even reached masters of contemporary fashion such as Oscar de la Renta. Including more than 80 of the finest examples, the book displays the museum's ikats in a manner that matches their boldness
Ann Dunham's legacy : a collection of Indonesian batik( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beyond boundaries : tents of the Islamic world by Heba Nayel Barakat( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En route to Mecca : pilgrims' voices throughout the centuries by Nurul Iman Rusli( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Accompanying the exhibition 'En Route to Mecca: Pilgrims' Voices throughout the Centuries' is a publication that provides an informative look at this highly significant annual event. Nothing embodies the universal nature of Islam better than Hajj, with pilgrims converging from every corner of the earth. The aspect of Hajj that receives less coverage is how the pilgrims reach their goal. Although it is often referred to as the "journey of a lifetime", there is remarkably little attention given to the pilgrims' means of travel. 'En Route to Mecca' focuses on the sense of anticipation and adventure that the faithful have always encountered on their way to fulfilling this Pillar of Islam. Reflections of this journey can be seen in pilgrims' thoughts and actions as well as in works of art. A museum can offer more than beautiful objects to look at. It can also tell a story, and there are few better stories than those of the men and women through the ages who have completed Hajj

Rhythm and verses : masterpieces of Persian calligraphy : from the collection of The Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia by Heba Nayel Barakat( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this highly original publication, Dr Heba Nayel Barakat explores the brilliance of Persian single folios. These works from the 16th to the 19th century are among the finest achievements of Islamic civilisation, and yet have received little attention from scholars or publishers. Accompanying an exhibition of the same name, this catalogue examines more than just the beauty of these calligraphic masterpieces in the collection of the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia. The author also brings to life the rhythmic quality of the folios. New light is shed on a field that is both fascinating and mysterious

Jewels without crowns : Mughal gems in miniatures by Lucien De Guise( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

India and gemstones are inseparable. Among the Subcontinent's most prolific patrons of the jewelled arts were the Mughal emperors, whose adornments dazzled visitors centuries ago and continue to excite viewers today. Complimenting the brilliance of these creations were the miniature paintings of the time. Often likened to jewels, these works on paper do more than entertain the eye; they illuminate as well. By comparing the paintings and the objects depicted in them, the world of Mughal opulence is opened to the reader. Jewels without Crowns brings together two fields of artistic accomplishment by one of the most visionary dynasties of the Islamic world
Faith and power : women in Islam by Ros Mahwati Ahmad Zakaria( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Confounding the expectations of many observers, Muslim women have occupied positions of power for as long as Islam has existed. These roles range from the trading might of the Prophet Muhammad's first wife, Khadija, to the more formal status of the 12th century Queen Arwa of Yemen. The Qur'an alludes to women of authority from as long ago as the Queen of Sheba and Asiyah bint Muzahim, wife of the Egyptian Pharaoh during the distant days of Moses. In more recent times, the political leadership of Islamic states such as Pakistan and Bangladesh has drawn heavily on the female half of the population. Faith & Power: Women in Islam explores a rich history that has often been overlooked or deliberately ignored. Examining the lives of these women, and the attitudes shown towards them, the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia is also able to provide a physical dimension with artefacts from a wide range of times and places. Jewellery, clothing and the accoutrements of power bring new vigour to the lives of forgotten queens, consorts and wielders of influence from behind the throne. -- Publisher description
Symbols of Power and Beauty : the collection of the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia by Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Islamic Arms and Armour, being part of the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia collection, represents the finest and most exquisite form of art produced in the Islamic world. Despite popular misconception, many of this weaponry were not mainly produced for battles or warfare. They are, in fact, primarily produced as expressions of social status, accessories in ceremonial gatherings and as diplomatic gifts. Furthermore, their decorations reflect the finest workmanship in gemstone setting, intricate calligraphic inscription with gold and silver inlay, as well as in the art of metallurgy. These arms and armour, being the pride of the society, were always portrayed in major epic stories in addition to miniature paintings. The miniature paintings highlight the beauty and effectiveness of Islamic arms, illustrating the tactics and strategies that attest to the pre-eminence of Muslim warfare. Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia is publishing a catalogue of over 200 objects of arms and armour entitled "Symbol of Power and Beauty: The collection of the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia". The artefacts included in this catalogue reflect the arms and armour from around the Islamic dynasties, beautified with elaborate miniature paintings. The catalogue, which measures 24cm (W) x 29cm (H), offers around 220 pages of stimulating journey through the history and culture of the Islamic world
