Altoon Sultan reviews A Prince's Manuscript Unbound: Muhammad Juki's 'Shahnamah' on view at the Asia Society in New York through May 1, 2011. She writes: "Many of the images were of battles and bloodshed, but even so, were full of wonder in their details and color."  Sultan also share some of her own favorite Persian paintings enjoying their "carefully observed and refined details… the forms are essentially flat, but there is such sensitivity in the use of line that the merest suggestion of volume creates a sense of solidity."
