I've spent countless Saturdays standing in front of this work at the Art Institute of Chicago. Mitchell is originally from Chicago, but moved to New York early in her career. I still believe this cityscape is Chicago...
Standing in front of the Google Gigapixel team's screen as they took thousands of images of this artwork, I was blown away by the incredibly layered details here added as the piece traveled from Iran to India. Check out the pixel-perfect details yourself.
I love that this pattern is from over 500 years ago, yet feel so contemporary. The world, as it seems, does not change all that much.
After working on The Gifts of the Sultan exhibit at the Museum of Islamic Art, I became quite obsessed with cameos, and even created a short illustrated story around one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tn7NYqI_DWo&context=C41231feADvjVQa1PpcFObGX6fkAjUCOKoXoN0dDU76irbN4QLqiw=. I love the amber color on the one here too.
This robe is massive! I think it could actually fit five women.
Ibrahim el-Salahi has an incredible narrative, and the current exhibit dedicated to him in Sharjah is revelatory.
