Introduces a previously unpublished major collection of Islamic, Modern, and Contemporary Middle Eastern art, notable for its exceptional range and breadth from earliest times to the present 
The Farjam Collection of Islamic, and Modern and Contemporary Middle Eastern art, comprising over 5,000 artworks, is well known in the Middle East and to the cognoscenti but has remained unpublished until now. This two-volume publication published in four books comprises over 800 highlights from the collection, introducing it as a major resource for scholars, students, and bibliophiles. Unusual amongst collections of Islamic art, the exceptional range and breadth of this collection includes the arts of the Islamic world from earliest times up to and including the contemporary Middle East. This unique characteristic, represented across the themes of both volumes, provides an unusual cross-cultural experience demonstrating continuity, dialogue and influences—from within as well as in between the cultures—throughout centuries. Organised thematically with high quality photography, the book reflectscurrent trends in the study of Islamic and Contemporary art through essays and entries written by eminent scholars.
