With research underway into another projects where The English Group shall once again be working with geometric patterns and Arabesques, here’s but a glimpse towards this sublime artform.
The first image is of a tile from Iberia.
The following images are in order:
An illustration by Christopher Dresser from Studies In Design, Ornament In The Arabian Style (an 1876 lithograph).
Details from an 1877 mosaic mural from Prisse d’Avens, Mosquée d’El-Bordeyny.
From Karl Gerstner’s 1986 book ‘The Forms Of Colour; The Interaction Of Visual Elements’.
