Lecture by Sussan Babaie, Professor of Persian Art and Architecture, The Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London

Women courting princes, visiting mausoleums, bathing and dancing at court, hunting— Persianate book painting of the fifteenth century is extraordinarily rich in images of women. Equally impressive are extant examples of monumental patronage by women of the House of Timur. Explore the implications for patronage in this period of the "female touch."
