Description: This seminar explores figural painting and arts of the book in the Persianate cultural sphere, ca. 1300s-1800s. We will study concepts of the book in Islamic civilization, illustrated narratives of Persian literature, word/image relationship, albums, and single-page portraits. The class also examines artistic interactions with East Asia and Europe, and concludes with the advent of lithography in the nineteenth century. Some course meetings will take place at Houston-area museums. Graduate students are required to submit a research paper (15-20 pages).
