Item description for Uygur Patronage in Dunhuang: Regional Art Centres on the Northern Silk Road in the Tenth Century (Brill's Inner Asian Library) by Lilla Russell-Smith...

This volume is about the long-neglected, but decisive influence of Uygur patrons on Dunhuang art in the tenth and eleventh centuries. Through an insightful introduction to the hitherto little-known early history and art of the Uygurs, the author explains the social and political forces that shaped the taste of Uygur patrons. The cultural and political effects of Sino-Uygur political marriages are examined in the larger context of the role of high-ranking women in medieval art patronage.

Careful study of the iconography, technique and style sheds new light on important paintings in the collection of the British Museum in London, and the Muse national des Arts asiatiques-Guimet, in Paris, and through comparative analysis the importance of regional art centres in medieval China and Central Asia is explored. Richly illustrated with line drawings, as well as colour and black-and-white plates.
