  • Qajar Ceramics: Bridging Tradition and Modernity

    RM120.00

    Summary:

    The Qajar era (1785–1925) was a time of struggle to maintain Persian tradition and identity while embracing innovation and modernity.

Both the publication and the exhibition offer a closer look at the distinctive characteristics of Qajar ceramics, highlighting their forms, aesthetics and themes. Going further, the publication delves into historical sources, revealing newly discovered and important treatises on ceramic artists and kiln technology. Leading authorities have provided essays that explore the context and achievements of the Qajar era, making this the definitive work on ceramics of a fertile time for the applied arts in Persia.
