Gallery 455 displays material from the thirteenth to the early sixteenth century under the Mongol, Turkmen, Timurid, and Uzbek dynasties, as these arts came to flourish in such royal capitals as Tabriz, Samarkand, and Herat. Among the highlights are manuscript pages from fifteenth-century Herat, such as painted folios from the famous Assembly of the Birds or Mantiq-al-Tair, and other examples of the arts of the book. A chronological overview of the art of the Persian world, while underscoring its many connections with other cultures, continues in Gallery 462.
