The Umayyads: The Rise of Islamic Art (English)

By: Museum With No Frontiers


Language: English


From the 'Museum With No Frontiers' of 'Islamic Art in the Meditterrean'. 'The Umayyads. The rise of Islamic art' offers - through the diversity of the works presented - the necessary clues to a better understanding of the Umayyad culture. This 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 archetectural and decorative order in which the foundations for the birth of Islamic art would be laid.
