Ardebil.
[Gasper Bouttats.]
[n.d., c.1674.]
Engraving. Plate 355 x 290mm (14 x 11½"), with large margins. Central crease as normal.
View of the Iranian city of Ardabil with people and camel in the foreground. Notably the city is the origin for the 'Ardabil' or 'Ardebil' Carpet's, two different famous Persian carpets. It was made in the town of Ardabil in north-west Iran, the burial place of Shaykh Safi al-Din Ardabili, who died in 1334. The Shaykh was a Sufi leader, ancestor of Shah Ismail, founder of the Safavid dynasty (1501-1722). While the exact origins of the carpet are unclear, it's believed to have been commissioned by the court for the shrine of the Shaykh, which, by the 16th century, had became a place of pilgrimage. The carpet was still in the shrine of Shaykh Safi al-Din in 1843, where it was seen by British visitors. Around 30 years later, the shrine suffered an earthquake, and the carpet was sold to a Manchester carpet firm, who in turn put it up for sale in 1892. On inspecting the carpet on behalf of the V&A, designer William Morris reported it of “singular perfection… logically and consistently beautiful”. The V&A Museum acquired the carpet for £2,000 in March 1893.
