|Met curator Sheila Canby to lecture on Safavid era artist in Tehran||
She will also talk about gol-o-morgh, a unique style of Persian painting featuring bird and floral motifs in different colors, during the late 17th century.
Jabbadar was one of the first to have incorporated European influences in traditional Safavid era miniature painting.
Canby is the Patti Cadby Birch Gallery curator in charge of the Department of Islamic Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Artworks from Spain, North Africa, and the Western Mediterranean are on display at the gallery.
Until fall 2009, Canby was the Curator of Islamic Collections at the British Museum. Canby’s publications include Persian Painting (London, 1993), Islamic Art in Detail (London, 2005), and Shah Abbas: the Remaking of Iran (London 2009).
Canby is currently engaged in research on Persian art of the Safavid and earlier periods, and hopes to curate an exhibition on Seljuk art with her colleague Deniz Beyazit in 2015.
The center, which is affiliated with the Iranian Academy of Arts, is located at 29 Hassan Sokhanvar Alley off Vali-e Asr Ave.
