    In the present day philosophy classicism is used as a term particularly in relation to Apollonian over Dionysian impulses in society and art; that is a preference for rationality, or at least rationally guided catharsis, over emotionalism. Manuscript Illumination As mentioned above, the Qur'ans are the only manuscripts which have remained from the early period of the Islamic era in Persia. It was natural that the art of this empire should be greatly influenced by the art of the Near East. This term will be discussed in the next section. Tiny domes are set on tall bases that sprout from the first story.

    His contribution to the art of calligraphy was not only the invention of a new script, but the application of the systematic rules to the informal naskh hand. The illumination of this page shows the remarkable ability to combine calligraphy and ornament into a decorative pattern. Early Renaissance Florence, the center of the early Renaissance, was ruled by a wealthy and powerful banking family, the Medici. F,H,27 Islamic illumination is clearly rooted in the civilization's long tradition of flat patterns. Early in the century the old conventional treatment of landscape still held its own; nor did the diapered and gilded background pass out of use.

    Solid walls are disguised behind plaster and tile decoration, vaults and arches are covered with floral and epigraphic ornament that dissolve their structural strength and funcion and domes are filled with radiating designs of infinite patterns, bursting suns or fantastic floating canapes of multitude of mukkarnas, that banish the solidity of stone and masonary and give them a peculiarly ephemeral quality as if the crystallization of the design is their only reality. In Italy it was most commonly used in cities, such as Ravenna and Venice, that were in close contact with the Byzantine Empire. In Seljuq Qur'ans of the 11th and 12th centuries the Iranian type of Kufic is fully developed. There is a certain affinity between them and the Mesopotamian school, which suggests that Manichean Persian painting was already an influence upon earlier Muslim book painting.

Classical style in Islamic painting book

These Qur'ans show a highly decorative combination of one of the most beautiful decorative forms of Eastern Kufic, the so - called Qarmathian script and ornamentation.

While Florentine and Roman artists emphasized line, Venetian artists loved to portray the effects of color and light. The methods of writing were adopted from the 'Abbasid Kufic scripts. Like the classical models, the texts of alSufi were illustrated with pictures of constellations.

It may give the name of the owner, it may play the part of a modern title-page, giving the name of the author, the title of the work and its various sections, or a list of the different works contained in the manuscript; or very occasionally it may include a dedication in Arabic or in Persian.

These paintings, which have the realism of Giotto's works, were admired and studied by many later artists, including Michelangelo.

Italian Art and Architecture

His career began in Milan, where he was influenced by Leonardo and by early Christian churches. Bramante was the first architect of the High Renaissance.

It seems that the background of the scene was first painted in full, covering the whole surface of the page; then, over this background were painted the larger figures and objects; and over these again the smaller details in front of them were superimposed.

Futurist artists were excited about what the new century would bring, and they wanted to abolish the past. Early Christian churches were usually built using either the basilican or the central plan.

Also, calligraphic decorations first began to appear on pottery during this period. The painterly style often has visible brushstrokes, while the linear style features smooth areas of colour, in which no brushstrokes can be seen.

As early as the s, travelers reported that Shah Jahan had intended to build a matching mausoleum for himself out of black granite on the opposite bank of the Yamuna; modern scholars, however, regard this as a legend with no basis in fact.

During the classical age, people and their lives on earth had been of central importance. The broad, bold style of the 12th century gives place to the precise and minute. Ambrogio's panoramic views of town and countryside in his fresco The Effects of Good and Bad Government show his ability to depict large-scale outdoor scenes.

The softness of the features and the expression of sadness in the eyes are like the technique and feeling of late Greek painting. The Art of the Islamic World owes a great deal to the rule of these Turkish Dynasties, and the influence of Turkish thought, taste and tradition on the Art of Islam in general can hardly be overestimated.
