Persia : thirty centuries of art & culture by A. T Adamova( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was the last Shah of Persia who in 1935 requested the international community to henceforth call his country by its own name, Iran, 'Land of the Aryans'. The history of this country is a long and rich one." "The Iranian culture is individual and unique. Its characteristic designs and iconography have survived down the centuries despite the many political and religious changes and developments to affect the country." "From ancient times until the nineteenth century Persian artists depicted the world around them in reliefs and ceramics, on paper, parchment and canvas. The figurative element was never banished from Persian art, although the Koran discouraged bringing man and beast to life in artistic representations. Yet artists aspired to heavenly perfection in their art as a way of honouring Allah and working in His spirit." "This book presents the splendid collection of the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. The collection includes many interesting pieces covering the whole history of Iran from antiquity to the end of the Qajar dynasty (1785-1925)."--Jacket
Persian painting : the arts of the book and portraiture by A. T Adamova( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and Polish and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Persian miniature painting is among the most well-established and celebrated traditions of Islamic art, valued and treasured throughout the ages in the Eastern and Western worlds. This volume, written by two scholars specializing in Persian painting and epigraphy (the study of inscriptions), respectively, catalogues The al-Sabah Collection of Persian miniature painting and bookbinding, from complementary perspectives. Coauthors Adel T. Adamova and Manijeh M. Bayani place the works in an artistic and historical context and demonstrate their significance in the development of Persian painting by way of attributions, identification of subjects, and interpretation of stylistic features. From a historical perspective, they document the movement of manuscripts through their owners seal impressions and librarians notes, and identify various works by scribes and illustrators involved in the production of these manuscripts and miniatures. Richly illustrated and including rare examples from the pre-Mongol invasion period never before reproduced in print, the book also includes illustrated folios detached from important fourteenth- and fifteenth-century manuscripts and paintings from dispersed Safavid and post-Safavid albums, as well as seventeenth- century bookbindings and oil paintings from the Zand and Qajar periods
