Museum Rietberg - Park-Villa Rieter

SketchUpBuilder
The third part of the Museum Rietberg, the so-called Park-Villa Rieter, concentrates on Indian painting. Temporary exhibitions will show works of art drawn from a collection which embraces over 1’500 paintings and that attests to the entire stylistic range of Indian painting beginning from the 12th to the 20th century. A palm leaf manuscript within the collection dating from the year 1155 is an early example of an illuminated Buddhist text, the manuscript of the five powers of protection. The focus of the collection is on the painting from Rajasthan in north-west India. The upper floor exhibits the art of Iran shown for the first time at the museum: an illustration dating from 1340 and deriving from the so-called Small Shahnameh attests to early Persian book art. Similarly represented are the sculptures and plastic artefacts from ancient Iran, whereby the bronze art from Luristan takes up a prominent place. Joining these are ancient Egyptian textiles, as well as carpets from the Caucasus, Anatolia, the Turkmenian region and Persia. In the newly created carpet room, four to six alternating carpets can be seen every year, each of which are committed to a specific theme, whether it be a motif, an historical development, a certain region or a particular type of carpet. #art #arte #asian #asiatico #asiatiques #asiatisch #asiático #aziatisch #Enge #Europa #Europe #kunst #lart #la_Suisse #museo #museum #musée #parc #parco #park #parque #Rietberg #Rieterpark #Schweiz #Suisse #Suiza #Svizzera #Switzerland #villa #Zurich #Zurigo #Zwitserland #Zürich
