The Bruschettini Foundation is world-renowned for its collection of Islamic and Asian art. This exquisite volume reproduces a fascinating selection of  carpets, textiles, wares, paintings, and precious inlaid metalwork from the thirteenth to the seventeenth century, chosen from the collection. Handpicked by Alessandro Bruschettini in conversation with Aga Khan Museum curator Filiz Çakır Phillip, this impressive array of works, each equally astonishing in vibrancy and technical perfection, has origins spanning the Islamic world from China to Spain. Presenting one of the most important private collections in Europe, this volume reveals the enduring allure of Islamic masterpieces from the early modern period.
