With the help of the book-album of the senior researcher of the Department of Oriental Studies of Matenadaran Ivet Tajaryan “Samples of the Khajaran art of Matenadaran”, an attempt is made for the first time from art criticism to address the illustrated manuscripts and related compositions of the Khajaran period of the Matenadaran.

The book-album, which was presented on December 23 in Matenadaran, includes about a hundred miniatures and related works from 20 manuscripts. The presented art samples fully cover and best depict the originality of the Iranian miniature of the Khajaran period. Yvette Tajarian worked on the book for three years. He noted that the illustrated manuscripts and original compositions presented in the trilingual album – Armenian, English and Persian, have features characteristic of this region.
