Welcome! You are invited to join a webinar: Dr Sheila Canby – ‘Indians in Safavid Iran: the pictorial evidence’. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email about joining the webinar.
Indians appear in Persian painting long before the Safavid period (1501-1722), either as characters in illustrations of the Shahnameh of Ferdowsi or Khamsa of Nizami or as unidentified labourers, elephant jockeys and the like. Over the course of the 16th and 17th centuries the Persian depiction of Indians expanded to include portraits and works in the Indian style.
