Abstract:   (9588 Views)
Arthur Upham Pope and his wife Phyllis Ackerman are both among the most wellknown recent researchers who have published various books and articles about Persian art and architecture. One of their most famous and significant works is their 16 volume encyclopedia titled “A Survey of Persian Art: From Prehistoric Times to the Present” and published in 1977. This book has been used by researchers around the world as one of the basic references for studying history of Persian art and architecture. The book has been translated into Farsi in 2008. The last part of the third volume of the book contains an article named “Gardens” in which the authors have considered various aspects of historical gardens of Iran in a rather compact text. The text does not have any detailed sub-headings and includes just two drawings, so the reader should refer to other volumes to view the pictures and plates. Since the authors have a broad research background on the history of Persian art and architecture, it is worth having a more detailed look at the article here which could be useful for those researchers and scholars in the field who may not be familiar with the article or may not have access to it. The article discusses several related issues on Persian gardens such as their history, aim and such objectives of creation as their space, their critical role in people’s life in the region, their properties, design layout and their elements such as ponds, water canals, trees, flowers, animals and decorations. The article also provides a vast and complete list of original and historical references on Persian gardens.
