    Using selections from the Museum’s collection of Persian paintings for inspiration, Conley Harris, an artist and collector of Indian and Persian art, has created six interpretative works depicting a continuing theme in Persian paintings: animals and landscape. Displayed beside the Museum’s 15th- through 17th-century paintings in the Islamic Corridor, “Glorious Beasts in Persian Paintings” emphasizes unique aspects of Persian painting including history, techniques, and traditions. Responding to a 16th-century manuscript depicting a hunting scene, Harris created High-spirited Horseman, shown above, a vibrant painting intended to “simultaneously evoke the original’s elegance and designed confusion…Everything is layered, all the colors are heightened and the action blurred by the raging chaos of battle.”
