CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Artistic expression in the Middle East is experiencing something of a
renaissance. Domestic patronage is flourishing, and an impressive array of new
museums and art fairs across the region is helping to stimulate international
interest in an increasingly influential movement. Art of the Middle East is an
accessible overview of modern and contemporary art of the Middle East and Arab
world from 1945 to the present, with an emphasis on artists active today. The
featured works are divided into seven themed sections - including literature,
portraiture and the body, and politics, conflict and war - while extended
captions provide an engaging commentary on each artwork and the artist behind
its creation. Lavishly illustrated throughout, this landmark publication is an
authoritative guide to a challenging and exciting body of work.
