The Praiseworthy One: Devotional Images of The Prophet Muhammad In Islamic Traditions

202 Frick Fine Arts Building
Sponsored By: 
Medieval & Renaissance Studies Program, the Early Modern Worlds Initiative, the Humanities Center, the Department of Religious Studies, and History of Art & Architecture Program

This presentation explores paintings of Muhammad produced in Persian and Turkish lands from the 1300s to the modern day. Ranging from veristic to abstract, these images represent Muhammad’s individual traits, primordial luminosity, and veiled essence. Their pictorial motifs reveal that artists engaged in abstract thought and turned to symbolic imagery to convey Muhammad’s origins and prophetic standing. These images inspired various mystical beliefs and practices.
