Description
The epoch between 1500 and 1700 has increasingly been understood as the moment when the economic and colonial forces that govern our world today fell into place, and cultural artifacts began to flow back and forth between nations, each influencing the other. This exhibition catalog compares these catalysts of cultural exchange, showcasing them in 260 color illustrations, including a woodcut by Albrecht Dürer, illustrated Chinese scrolls, Spanish paintings, Turkish fayence, Persian and Turkish rugs, and 60 full-page reproductions of exquisite miniatures from the 16th-century epic Hamzanama. The text includes essays by Salman Rushdie, Barbara Frischmuth, and Wheeler M. Thackston, among others.
