Friday, 18th – Wednesday, 23rd July 2014
(Class will not be held on Sunday 20 July)

4:30 pm to 6:30 pm

The world of Miniature Art is essentially form. Any art cannot be called ' traditional ' or 'Islamic ' on the grounds that it's subjects originate in a spiritual truth ; it's formal language must bear witness to a similiar origin.

Every traditional art is founded on a science of forms, on the symbolism inherent in the forms. A symbol is not merely a conventional sign. As Titus Burkckhardt clearly defines it , a symbol manifests an archetype by virtue of a definite ontological law. It is this 'formal language ' within the world of miniature painting which we will explore in this course.
