BRAND NEW, The Fascination of Persia: Persian-European Dialogue in Seventeenth-Century Art and Contemporary Art of Teheran, Axel Langer, Since the early 17th century, Europe and Persia have had a close association; Persia became the longed-for destination of many travellers, craftsmen, monks and knights. They travelled to Isfahan, the magnificent capital, to be received at court; they brought works of art and luxury goods with them in exchange for the finest silks and precious rugs to take back home which had a lasting influence on European and Persian art of the 17th and early 18th centuries. Few people today are aware of this important trading relationship; current political, religious and ideological differences dominate our perception of Iran today. Yet aside from this, modern Tehran has a rich and vibrant artistic life. This book explores the creative and artistic links between Persian and Europe over four centuries. Focusing on work by seven contemporary artists from Tehran, it provides an insight into a new modern Persia and its place within the international art world. At the same time, the reader is offered a fresh view of ancient art shown in contrasting juxtaposition. N° de ref. de la librería
Sinopsis: In the early seventeenth century, Persia was a desirable destination for European travelers and tradesmen, who were received in its magnificent capital Isfahan bearing works of art and left with priceless handcrafted rugs and the finest silks. This exchange of luxury goods left a mark on artistic production in both countries throughout the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries and is a testament to a long friendship whose history has been overshadowed in recent years by political disputes in the region.
The Fascination of Persia documents this fruitful artistic exchange, thus offering a fresh view of the two traditions in juxtaposition. Modern Teheran remains a vibrant and exciting venue for contemporary art today, and the book also foregrounds works some previously unpublished by seven of the city’s most important contemporary artists to show that, despite difficult circumstances, the dialogue with the global art world continues.
Published to accompany an exhibition at the Museum Rietberg in Zürich and including essays by leading art historians, The Fascination of Persia investigates a little-remembered period of exchange between East and West.
About the Author: Axel Langer is a curator of Eastern art at the Museum Rietberg in Zürich.
