Sinopsis:

In this book, B.W. Robinson traces the development of the different styles of Persian painting during the fifteenth century, and considers a number of the problems and issues involved in establishing a methodology and system of classification for Persian painting of that period.

Robinson begins, by way of background, with a review of the schools of Herat and Shiraz up to the middle of the century, and then proceeds to tackle in order the three main fields of controversy: painting under the Turkmans, Timurid paintings in Transoxiana and Timurid painting in India.

The uneasy fusion of contrasting characteristics of Herat and Shiraz that resulted in the emergence of Turkman court painting is traced through the origins, development, and branching of the Turkman style into a definitive form. Then the author reviews a branch of the art almost entirely neglected up to now, which he identifies as originating in Transoxiana. Finally he provides a new approach to the study of pre-Mughal Indian painting in Persian style by dividing the material into five stylistic groups.

Review:

-,

"Algernon Austin offers sweeping, occasionally defiant, essays on the state of Black social and political thought. "Achieving Blackness" will provoke, inspire, irritate, and educate its readers. Austin may well be setting the agenda for a new generation of race theorists."
-Charles Lemert, author of "Dark Thoughts: Race and the Eclipse of Society"

"This book is engagingly written from start to finish, and, since (Austin) draws upon- and often debunks- views of other scholars, I felt like I was eavesdropping at a symposium which grew heated at times. . . . I also must confess this is the most compelling reading I've done this year."
-Gerri Gribi, Curator, AfroAmericanHeritage.com

"Austin does a magnificent job of advancing the field and pushes the scholarly conversation in exciting and productive directions. Beautifully written, this truly is a groundbreaking piece of work and will have a major impact on the field because it challenges leading theorists and well-established theories of race and difference."
-David N. Pellow, author of "Garbage Wars: The Struggle for Environmental Justice in Chicago"

"This highly informed work addresses a complicated and difficult topic in light of solid research and common sense. It should become required reading for those who are interested in clear definitions and balanced views."
-Wilson J. Moses, author of "Creative Conflict in African American Thought"
