ART OF THE ARAB LANDS

ART OF THE ARAB LANDS NEWLY NAMED GALLERIES OPENING AT THE MET NOVEMBER 1st 15 galleries, 1,200 works of art, spanning 13 centuries – all in the galleries now named ART OF THE ARAB LANDS including Turkey, Iran, Central Asia and Later South Asia, stretching from the culture of Moorish Spain to that of the Mughal in India. I read that the items have been arranged chronologically and with great sensitivity – a mihrab or prayer niche from a 14th century mosque has been oriented so that it faces east. I hope to see the galleries in the near future.
