Dr. Almut von Gladiss / Gladiß (* 29.05.1943 † 24.06.2013), initially trained as a classical archaeologist, moved after her doctorate in the field of Islamic art history. Since the 1980s, she has been working at the Museum of Islamic Art in Berlin, where she initially dealt primarily with the metalwork of the collection intensively. She has curated several exhibitions and written or edited the corresponding catalogs. We owe her numerous valuable contributions to a broad spectrum of Islamic art history, e.g. to the Berlin Prachtkoran (Splendid Koran) and the Indian Moghul miniatures.
Claus-Peter Haase, director of the Museum of Islamic Art (2001-2009) has written an obituary for Almut von Gladiss, but this is no longer available on WIKIPEDIA.
