The Fabric of Moroccan Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This sumptuous exhibition catalog provides a substantial introduction to the textiles of Morocco, with high-quality color plates and numerous photographs of traditional costume throughout the country. The catalog essays feature the history of Morocco, the story of the Indianapolis Museum's Niblack collection, and a life of Prosper Ricard, who initiated the study and appreciation of the arts of Morocco. The textiles are divided by geography and according to urban and rural traditions. A complete technical analysis of the collection and a list of references are included, but there is no index. Paydar is the curator of textiles at the Indianapolis Museum of Art; Grammet is an independent art historian in Morocco.
