BIPS Lecture "Nader Shah and the Spoils of India in Eighteenth Century Iran" Past

Monday, Aug 31, 2015 - London, SW1Y 5, United Kingdom

The Peacock Throne, dazzling diamonds and rubies were among the spectacularly rich loot taken from the treasury in Delhi after the 1739 defeat of the Mughals by Nadir Shah (r. 1736-47). Beyond the famed jewels and be-jeweled objects, the spoils of Delhi included craftsmen and artists. This talk focuses on the short-lived, strange and consequential impact on the arts of Iran of Nadir’s exploits in India and on his refashioning of the body image of the Iranian king, as much in architecture as in pictures of the new world conqueror.
