Yuka Kadoi. Islamic Chinoiserie: The Art of Mongol Iran

However an overview of the phenomenon has yet to be made. A cultural history of Islamic textilesCambridge University Press,and Culture and conquest in Mongol EurasiaCambridge University Press,is a model for Islamic, Chinese and Mongol studies to build the cultural, historical, religious, economic… panorama that can explain Islamic Chinoiserie.

Articles by Nancy Shatzman Steinhardt on the copy Chinese paintings by medieval central Asian artists are an excellent example of the minute inquires needed at the level of tthe objects before any overview can be made. The multi-cultural education of researchers and a team approach are the keys to accessing sources originating in eastern and western Asia.


Yuka Kadoi, now at the Art Institute of Chicago, has accomplished this chunoiserie due to her double background in Chinese and Islamic studies.

Focus is on human beings and their artifacts face shapes, dress peculiarities, ceremonies, architecture The chaptering of the book has, however, been influenced by the technical aspects, for example imports of ceramic-making techniques before the Mongols, followed by imports of ceramics motifs during the Mongol period.

In effect, the book is organized by the material used for artworks: Sections are also devoted to objects selected by functionality or origin, such cjinoiserie mirrors or the metalwork of the Golden Horde.

Book paintings are the major section in this volume, with a focus on pre Ilkhanid examples from northwestern Iran and on regional manuscripts. It also provides a sense of consistency and value.

From a cultural point of view however, this museological approach tends to strip objects of their context, an effect that is counterproductive for explaining Islamic Chinoiserie motifs which were mostly independent of the medium.


Dragons, lotuses, clouds and suchlike were transferred via drawings on paper, as the author rightly points out, to stone, wood, ceramics, leather book bindings or any other suitable material.

A presentation by theme rather than material or a presentation of individual objects would have spared the author repetitions and turned the book into a handy catalog of Chinese elements in Mongol Islamic art.
