Bold or hidden, sometimes strange and often humorous, references to the erotic in later Safavid painting and drawing have been understood as expressions of lyrical beauty, metaphors for mystical union, or documents of social realities. This informal and lavishly illustrated talk by Michael Chagnon will take a different approach, considering Safavid depictions of the erotic as a corollary to radical experiments in both the composition and reading of poetry during this period. Brown Auditorium | Free, reservations required | Please RSVP by April 26 | Tickets: 323-857-6011 or email amec@lacma.org X-ALT-DESC:
