Join AGWA Director Stefano Carboni as he talks about his passion and introduces his new book The Wonders of Creation and the Singularities of Painting which studies the London Qazvini, an early fourteenth-century Arabic manuscript entitled The Wonders of Creation and the Oddities of Existing Things. The manuscript is one of a handful of beautifully illustrated codices produced under the Mongols of Iran, drawing on earlier Mesopotamian painting traditions, North Jaziran-Seljuq elements and Anatolian inspiration. Dr Carboni will discuss the manuscript’s 368 miniature paintings that illustrate the codex, and a partial critical translation of the related Arabic text. Dr Carboni is an international expert on Islamic art and we invite you to join Friends at this special event.
