This volume consists of two parts. In the first section the author explores the begin­nings of the recep­tion of Safavid art in Hungary and the ways it has been repre­sented to this western audi­ence, all the while giving an over­view of Iranian art objects preserved in Hunga­rian museums. The second section is devoted to an analysis of the single most precious piece of this cate­gory, known as the Ester­házy Appliqué. The author explores its origin, meaning, and tries to place it in its cultural context. With many illu­s­t­ra­tions in colours and some in b/w.
