Persian Ceramics from the Collection of the Asian Art Museum

The Asian Art Museum's extraordinary collection of Persian ceramics has been one of its least known treasures. In this book, Aimée Froom, former Hagop Kevorkian Associate Curator of Islamic Art at The Brooklyn Museum, New York, and an international lecturer and consultant in Islamic art, provides the first detailed survey of the collection's highlights. Section introductions summarize the history of Persian ceramics production, and each object is illustrated — many with multiple views — and discussed in a separate entry. The result is an essential introduction to one of the world's great traditions of ceramics artistry.
