About this event

Join Dr Moya Carey, the Curator of Islamic Collections at the Chester Beatty in Dublin for this talk Made in Isfahan: Mu`in Musavvir’s Shahnama in Toronto (volume 1) and Dublin (volume 2).

This talk addresses a two-volume Book of Kings (Shahnama) densely illustrated by Mu`in Musavvir, of which the first volume is in Toronto, in the Aga Khan Museum. The second volume is in the Chester Beatty’s current exhibition Meeting in Isfahan, where three of its twenty-two illustrations are displayed.

This onsite lecture will be delivered in-person in the museum’s Lecture Theatre, followed by Q&A and optional exhibition tour. The talk will also be available online via Zoom.

Each Coming to Isfahan lecture will be followed by a short tour of Meeting in Isfahan.
