The Human Figure in Islamic Art is the book behind the exhibition of the same name that will open at the David Collection on November 24, 2017. The book — like the exhibition — focuses on an unusually and rarely elucidated subject in the world of Islamic art: human depictions. The Human Figure in Islamic Art presents 75 important works from the David Collection, all of them focused on the human gure.
