About the Author
Oleg Grabar is Professor Emeritus of the School of Historical Studies at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, and Marilyn Jenkins-Madina is Research Curator of Islamic Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. They were both long-time colleagues of Richard Ettinghausen, who was professor of Islamic Art at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, and Consultative Chairman of Islamic Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art until his death in 1979.
"This is the second edition of what is probably the standard reference work on Islamic art and architecture.... It is difficult to do justice to this magnificent volume in a short review. It is an authoritative, highly readable, and beautifully produced work that should please specialists and educated readers alike."
