SILVANA EDITORIALE

Islamic Metalwork from the Aron Collection

Edited with text by Giovanni Curatola.

Islamic Metalwork from the Aron Collection

An eye-opening cornucopia of Islamic metal craftsmanship from the Middle Ages to the 14th century

The Aron Collection was first introduced to the public in 1986 with the publication of a highly acclaimed catalog featuring a wide variety of Islamic metalwork pieces. This volume presents the second expert curation of the private English collection, helmed by professor Giovanni Curatola. The text explores the main regional schools that flourished in this particular genre of Islamic art, focusing in particular on Iran and Central Asia with pieces dating as far back as the Medieval era alongside later works. Metalworking is an extremely technical and complex art, and each of the items in this collection represents a level of virtuosity achieved through centuries of experimentation. The pitchers, bowls and other vessels offer insight into the evolution of the craft between the 9th and the 14th centuries and open a window onto the lifestyles of Muslim society through history.
