Persian art at the Louvre Museum, Paris, France. There are art pieces from the Royal Palace in Susa from the Achaemenids, the Persian Empire founded by Cyrus the Great (d. 530 BCE).

King Darius the Great (r. 522-486 BCE), built one of his residences in Susa, where these
pieces were taken from. Also featured are art pieces from the Sassanid Empire era, and
from Bishapur (near modern Kazerun) and other places in Iran.

And lastly, there are examples of Persian-Islamic art from after the Arabian invasions of Persia in 651 CE.

Note: the first 2 slides in the show are Greek art pieces.
