The human figure in Islamic art : holy men, princes, and commoners by Kjeld von Folsach( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Human Figure in Islamic Art' is the book behind the exhibition of the same name that will open at the David Collection on November 24, 2017. The book - like the exhibition - focuses on an unusually and rarely elucidated subject in the world of Islamic art: human depictions. The Human Figure in Islamic Art presents 75 important works from the David Collection, all of them focused on the human gure. The book describes how, despite this reluctance, portraying human figures has nonetheless always played an important role in Islamic art. The human figure is found on many kinds of utility ware, but the motif also has a long and rich tradition especially in miniature painting. The paintings in the book largely feature princes, but also holy men and quite ordinary people in the form of illustrations for works of fiction, depictions of real-life events, and true portraits.

Shahnama : the colorful epic about Iran's past by Joachim Meyer( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a large selection of beautiful, richly detailed miniature paintings? primarily from Iran, but also from India and Turkey? the volume recounts stories from the famous Shahnama (The Book of Kings). This Iranian epic poem is world literature on a par with the Icelandic sagas and Homer?s mythological tales from Antiquity. It was written by Abu?l Qasim Firdawsi (940-1020) as an enormous, cohesive poem of 50,000 verses. The epic tells of the life of the Iranian princes? their courage, adventures, and conflicts? from?the beginning of the world? to the 7th century. In addition to being a historic narrative and poetry, the Shahnama can also be viewed as a national declaration of love to Iran. The miniatures date from c. 1300-1850. Apart from a single painting on loan from the Royal Library, all of the miniatures come from the David Collection?s own holdings.00Exhibition: The David Collection, Copenhagen, Denmark (18.03.-06.11.2016)
