> DESCRIPTION

Christopher Gandy spent over 30 years in diplomatic posts in the Middle East. He developed a strong appreciation for the art and architecture of the region which fuelled his subsequent passion for collecting Islamic art during his retirement.

After his death in 2009 the Ashmolean received a major bequest of over 130 objects from his collection. This display of some of its highlights celebrates the breadth of Christopher Gandy’s interests as a collector.
