“The Water Heritage of Mughal Gardens and Landscapes in Kashmir”
Compared to early Mughal gardens on the semi-arid plains of South Asia, those of Kashmir had abundant water supplies that transformed the design of 17th-century Mughal landscapes. In a lecture titled “The Water Heritage of Mughal Gardens and Landscapes in Kashmir,” Jim Wescoat, Aga Khan Professor of Landscape Architecture Emeritus at MIT, will draw upon water imagery in paintings, shawls, and historical texts to explore the multiple scales and dimensions of Mughal water heritage from individual water axes and cascades to regional lakes and watersheds in Kashmir.
This event is held in conjunction with the Wondrous Worlds: Art and Islam Through Time and Place exhibition at the Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory University.
