Another Day in Paradise

The Walters Art Museum

Through September 23, 2012

Through illuminated manuscripts and illustrated books from 15th-century France and 16th-century Iran, Paradise Imagined: The Garden in the Islamic and Christian World explores the art of the garden as an expression of religious devotion, kingly justice, poetic inspiration and carnal love. Despite the broad cultural gap, the Christian and Islamic illustrations similarly depict the garden as a place of learning and transformation.
