On the Shah’s Footsteps: A Journey Across Iran

Iran boasts one of the world’s richest cultural legacies. Grand archaeological sites and cities stand as testimonies of the powerful and vibrant empires that once ruled its lands. Its portable arts, from polychrome ceramics to fine miniature paintings and carpets, also reveal its sophistication and poetic outlook.

Through unprecedented access to superb examples from the Eastern Art collections in the Ashmolean Museum, this study day will reveal the refinement of Persian art and its spellbinding quality.
