The proceedings of the Barakat Trust Conference in Islamic Art and History held at St John’s College, Oxford in 1994, on the politics and artistic patronage of the Ilkhanid court in Iran between circa AD 1290 and 1340. The Ilkhanids were of Mongol origin, and the papers range from their contacts with China to the way in which they were perceived by their Mamluk rivals in Egypt. Others concentrate on their patronage of Islamic building and book production, in particular, an illustrated Shahnama that marks a new departure in Persian painting. This book is intended for scholars, students and collectors of Islamic Art.
