Navina Najat Haidar, Marika Sardar. Another beautiful book from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Deccan period in India (roughly 1500-1700) was a time of change and discovery. In the 16th and 17th centuries, the Deccan plateau of south-central India was home to a series of important, highly cultured Muslim kingdoms and was a nexus of international trade. The increased influence and domination of Muslim rulers from the Middle East brought many of the techniques and concerns of Persian culture to India, just at the time when Europeans were seeking to expand their presence in Asia.

A survey of the stunningly beautiful visual and decorative arts created by India's Deccan kingdoms In the 16th and 17th centuries, the Deccan plateau of south-central India was home to a series of important, highly cultured Muslim kingdoms and was a nexus of international trade. Invigorated by cultural connections to Iran, Turkey, East Africa, and Europe, Deccani art is celebrated for its unmistakable, otherworldly character: in painting, a poetic lyricism; in architecture, a somber grandeur; and in the decorative arts, lively creations in inlaid metalwork and dyed textiles. This beautifully illustrated catalogue, which includes extraordinary new site photographs and lush landscape images, along with discussions of 200 of the finest Deccani works, creates the most comprehensive examination to date of this fascinating and remote world. The text not only discusses paintings, drawings, textiles, arms, manuscripts, and other decorative arts from this rich culture, but also explores the history, architecture, literature, and music of the period. Essays by prominent international authors, supplemented by informative maps, illustrated appendices, and select primary sources, make this pioneering book a key resource on the subject.

Comments:

Qiahmagha
Excellent - and thorough - catalogue of a stellar exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of the Met's best ever. Informative but in an easy way that would satisfy scholar and lay-person alike. Objects are in a never before - and probably never again - exhibit which can't even travel to the UK. Exhibition - & catalogue - open up a world not often written about - the Deccan Plateau of India - during the reign of the independent sultans.
Land of diamonds (some are 90 carats!) and fascinating architecture, the works are placed in the context of unusual styles of painting, and artisanry: marbled paper, decoupe-work (paper cut to make designs, then glued on paper surfaces); inlaid metal and other eye-openers - which one might miss were it not for the excellent descriptions. whether you saw the exhibit or not - this is a prize for anyone's collection of art - specially Indian art.
Dikus
