Art that traveled far, wide: Smith College exhibit showcases venerable art from the Persianate world

Before it became recognized by its modern name in 1935, Iran was known for centuries — at least in the western world — as Persia, a name that reflected the language of the same name and the culture that was part of it.

In the 1970s, academics coined another term — Persianate — to describe a society based on or influenced by Persian language and culture, as well as literature and art. That influence, scholars say, extended well beyond the physical boundaries of Persia/Iran for hundreds of years.

A new exhibit at the Smith College Museum of Art takes a close look at some of that art, tracing work that in many cases dates back hundreds of years and which connected people and ideas across a region stretching from Iran to modern-day India and Bangladesh.
