Yuka Kadoi's book on the artistic interaction between Iran and China under the Mongols will be published by Edinburgh University Press in coming April.
To quote from the flyer sent to me by the author, "Highly illustrated, Islamic Chinoiserie offers a fascinating glimpse into the artistic interaction between Iran and China under the Mongols. By using rich visual materials from various media of decorative and pictorial arts- textiles, ceramics, metalwork and manuscript painting- the book illustrates the process of adoption and adaptation of Chinese themes in the art of Mongol-ruled Iran in a visually compelling way."
I met Yuka two times, first in Krakow, Poland, participating in ESCAS 9th conference, the second time in London, presenting a paper titled, "Rustam's Tiger-Skin Coat" (خفتان رستم) in the Six Biennial conference of Iranian Studies. She currently works at the Art Institute of Chicago.
The photo showing Yuka and me was taken in a banquet in Krakow.
