A new exhibit at San Francisco's Asian Art Museum takes visitors on a journey of the artistic process through three centuries of Islamic art. The exhibit focuses on a writer from 16th-century Mughal India, an artist from 17th-century Safavid Iran, and an art patron from 18th-century Ottoman Turkey. The exhibit's curator, Qamar Adamjee, joins Forum to discuss what these three individuals can tell us about the development of Islamic art.
