$750

About

Flowers Underfoot: Indian Carpets of the Mughal Era Rich color illustrations and a scholarly text characterize this catalogue of a landmark exhibition of Mughal carpets held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, November 1997-March 1998. Though exquisite, Indian carpets are little known even to carpet experts. This volume (and the exhibition) focus on the 16th to the 18th century, a peak period for stunning works. The text surveys the era in terms of history, the role of commerce, technical characteristics, and the carpets themselves, which exemplify the broad range of imperial and provincial production during the "classical" period of Indian carpet weaving. Carpets are organized by style and pattern and include a group from Kyoto. Publisher ? : ? Metropolitan Museum of Art; First Edition (January 1, 1997) Language ? : ? English Softcover ? : ? 220 pages Dimensions ? : ? 9.5 x 1 x 12.5 inches.
