About This Book

The Umayyad culture represents the emergence of an innovative artistic language where the subtle crossbreeding of the Aramean, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, and Persian influences yield a new architectural and decorative order in which the foundations for the birth of the Islamic art would be laid. This book - one of the Museum With No Frontiers Exhibitions catalogues - provides a detailed introduction to the Umayyad culture, including art, architecture, pottery, coinage, utensils and others. With 182 colour illustrations, 43 monument plans and glossary.
