Lagniappe for Lisbon
WTR's Ernie Exhibit provides information on special current exhibitions for our featured museums such as: Calouste Gulbenkian Museum
Now through May 21, 2018 see The Emperor's Flowers
This exhibition offers an analysis of the decorative motifs found on two rugs produced in Mughal India during the reign of Shah Jahan (1628–1658) and now belonging to the Islamic Art Collection of the Museu Calouste Gulbenkian – Founder’s Collection. The naturalist style and typology of the floral designs of these pieces is indicative of the dialogue established between East and West over the 17th century, while also reflecting the global movement of people, books, images and botanical specimens.
