Persian Art: Collecting the Arts of Iran for the V&A (Hardback)

£40.00
Despatched in 2 business days.

Synopsis

Today the Victoria and Albert Museum holds extensive and renowned collections of Iranian art, spanning at least twelve centuries of Iran's sophisticated cultural history. These objects range from archaeological finds to architectural salvage, from domestic furnishings and drinking vessels to design archives. Most of this diverse material was purchased in the late nineteenth century, over a few decades - roughly between 1873 and 1893 - during a specific period of contact between Victorian Britain and Qajar Iran. This book investigates that period through four case studies, showing how architects, diplomats, dealers, collectors and craftsmen engaged with Iran's complex visual traditions, ancient and modern.

Moya Carey is Iran Heritage Foundation Curator for the Iranian Collections at the V&A.
