Éloïse BRAC DE LA PERRIÈRE
Éloïse Brac de la Perrière is Associate Professor HDR at Sorbonne Université, where she teaches the art history of the Islamic world. A specialist in Persianophone areas (Iran, Central Asia, India), she has notably worked on the art of the book in India during the pre-Mughal period, a subject on which she has published a number of articles and books, the latest of which, Le Coran de Gwalior, polysémie d’un manuscrit à peintures, was devoted to a manuscript from the Aga Khan collection. Between 2012 and 2017, she co-directed a research program at the Bibliothèque nationale de France focused on paintings of Arab fables, or Kalila wa Dimna, a project that led to both an exhibition and a collective volume (Brill, 2020). Éloïse Brac de la Perrière is currently the co-director for the scientific inventory of the Islamic art collections at the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, whose catalogue raisonné is in progress.
