Emine Fetvaci, Assistant Professor in the Department of History of Art and Archiecture at Boston University, speaks about her recent research into a seventeenth-century album made for the Ottoman Sultan Ahmed I, which brings together calligraphies of Persian mystical poetry, Ottoman paintings, and Dutch prints with Christian and mythological subject matter. Her talk will examine the intersection of the sacred and the secular in the album, and discuss the paintings, prints and calligraphies in the context of cross-cultural exchange.  

This is a private event for Friends of Asian Art members.
