Description
At courts across the Islamic world, gift-giving often served as a nexus of art and diplomacy, religion, and interpersonal relations. This gorgeously photographed exhibit catalogue examines the complex interplay between artistic production and gift-based patronage through some 240 rare and costly works of art associated with gift exchanges among the courts of Islam, Byzantium, western Europe, and eastern Asia from the 8th through the 19th century. Los Angeles County Museum of Art curator Linda Komaroff traces the unique histories of selected artworks and explores how the exchange of luxury objects played a central role in the circulation and assimilation of artistic forms within the Islamic world.

"A fine scholarly catalogue ... [and] a joy to explore, with so many wonderfully splendid images brilliantly elucidated."—Choice
