Pinner, Robert

  • Expanded Notes on Robert Pinner
  • Notes on Robert Pinner
  • I met Robert a few times. He seemed like a good sort and I liked him but we were never close. Not surprising since I am shy and Robert and I were in far too distant places. He seemed to be focusing on ICOC in the time frame that I knew him.
  • There was a fairly bitter rivalry between Pinner and the crew at Hali and the group at Oriental Rug Review. One rather vicious lampooning of Robert Pinner and Michael Frances reduced Pinner to tears at one point. To add insult to injury it was popularly believed that George O'Bannon wrote the attack when it was actually Ron O'Callaghan. When finally pinned down at an ICOC by Pinner, Ron finally came clean on the source of the article.

Poldi Pezzoli Carpet

  • Most people count the Poldi Pezzoli Carpet as Safavid and some even read the date as 1542-43. I doubt it. I think it is better attributed as late Turkmen Period and that the date should be read 1522. Persian art follows a certain logical flow and evolution. To date a work of art such as the Poldi Pezzoli Carpet one must compare it to the greater body of art of that period. The art of the carpet is Tabrizi. But if it is Tabrizi was it designed before or after Bihzad left Herat and took charge of the art of the court in Tabriz. Safavid art did not begin until Bihzad merged the art forms of Turkmen Tabriz with Tmurid Herat. Look at the Turbans they are circa 1520 not 1540. Look at the subtle awkwardness in the design. It is the strength of Tabriz without the subtle gracefulness of Herat. Saddly money and polityics play a significant role in the attribution of carpets.
