Persian Painting

Persian painting has  the antiquity of  the beginning human history  since the presence of humans in caves until resent century. This painting was present in different styles and ideologies in historical periods

In the Sassanid era, the Iranian painter Mani, left valuable works in the Arzhang book.

From the beginning of Islam to the age of Seljuq dynasty , the Umayyad and abbasi rulers had monopolized the painting and avoided the growth of it among  people. In the first Islamic centuries, painting and Negargari were mostly used in decorating books. Usually the opening and margins of the book were painted and decorated. The art of decorating books flourished in the Seljuq dynasty, Mughal and Timurid rulers. From about the tenth century, painting was made independently.

What is the philosophy of Persian painting?

Iranian painting artists created images that, like grace, seem to be an embodiment of another world. Why is that so? Did they not know about perspective rules? Certainly that is not the case, or else people like Al-Farabi or Omar Khayyam who were wonders of mathematics would alert them. So the theory of lack of knowledge is out of the table.

Through all the artsو the art of painting can make the closest bond between the rational world and the sensible world because it is not at once removed from the resort to material and objective symbols, not because it is fully understood in the forms and shapes of the universe. Whereas in this art, the multi – dimensional world in which we live is reflected by means  on a page that only has two dimensions (width and length), and by line and color the inner and outer modes of the universe and the emotions associated with the perception of the universe, and because the truth is a mirror to the viewers eyes. 

In fact, the methods chosen by Persian artists represent the philosophy of the time and the Soul of the world where the artist is living.

There is a transition from this world to a purgatory world, like what we find when we sleep

In this regard, Iranian and foreign scholars have studied interesting research and have particularly discussed the issue from philosophical point of view that the quality of space is important for Iranian artist and in general the quality of space is important because of their meaning to the divine universe, more than the world whose apparent senses are discovered. It means that reality is not generally perceived to these creators, not what we feel with eye or external senses, but between the two poles of the theorem,the abstract world, another world from the Kingdom of the physical world, where shapes and colors are present in a more transcendent time and place. in this universe, which has been interpreted as“suspended shape, the phenomena without material existence have dimension and color and other forms and shapes in physical world, except that they are not used in the quality of their existence.
