Perspectives on Persian Art Lecture Series The Old and New Testaments in Islamic Painting, with Dr. Robert Hillenbrand
San Francisco, CA 94102
Stories of the prophets from the Old and New Testaments have had a long history of illustration in Islamic painting traditions. Drawing from accounts in the Qur’an and other sources in Islamic literature, scholars, poets, historians and storytellers developed new texts on the lives of the prophets. These texts were often accompanied by paintings. Dr. Robert Hillenbrand will explore the richness of some of these literary and artistic traditions in this lecture.
