Shahnameh Demotte

Dmvt Shahnameh, illustrated manuscript, now dispersed, of Ferdowsī’s epic poem, often identified by the name of a former owner, the Paris dealer Georges Demotte (active 1900-23). The surviving portions of this Šāh-nāma carry no direct information about its original owner. Opinions have been expressed about its illustrations, which reflect tensions between the Il-khanid dynasty and Persian subjects; perhaps commissioned by the vizier Ghiyath al-Din, son of Rashid al-Din of Tabriz in about 1330
