This exhibition celebrates the rich artistic traditions of Persian civilization through the significant private collection of Hossein Afshar, with works from the sixth to the nineteenth century, on long-term loan to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Persian refers to lands where Persian language and culture were predominant, encompassing a larger area than the modern-day nation-state of Iran. Through the collector’s eyes,?we see a portrait of Iran that affirms a strong sense of identity reflected?and established by the visual arts as well as an artistic sensibility that has?flourished over time.
