The Effective "Party" in Islamic Art and Architecture (in Arabic)

Auther : Mahmoud Ibrahim Hussein

This research paper deals with one of the significant issues in the field of Islamic art and architecture, namely the effective element or "Party" in Islamic art and architecture. Was such an element the "art sponsor", or was it the "artist" or was it "the prevailing thought or ideology"?
By the art sponsor, we mean all those who provided the artist with the needs and requirements of artistic work, e.g. funds, drawing tools, colours, paper or the appropriate place where the artist could practice his artistic work.
As to the Artist, it was that person who carried art or effected the artistic work in his field of specialization  (architectural constructions or minor arts). As to the prevailing thought, this paper deals with: a) its impact during Islamic ages on Islamic art and the relevant artistic production, and b) whether the effect of the prevailing thought was more powerful than that of the artist or the art sponsor.

In Summary, the effective "Party" in Islamic art and architecture was a combination of the three aforementioned components so that each of them has an equal share and never out weighed any of the other two. All of the three were always present on the scene in all ages. However, there were times during which this equilibrium was not so precisely manifest.
