Fact versus fantasy in Safavid palaces

Exploring the ambience of the Safavid Court of Shah 'Abbas through wood and textile structures.


Robert Hillenbrand, University of Edinburgh, examines the nature of recreational buildings in the Safavid era through the evidence of 16th-17th-century book painting.
