Hello dear viewer,
Shah Abbas Safavid is one of the kings of Persia.
This miniature work is related to the famous Iranian painter named Ostad Hosein Behzad.
I am trying to introduce these paintings to you with digital mixing and restoration of old miniatures.
Historical, or poetic texts, intricately designed images have formed an integral part of Persian manuscripts since at least the thirteenth century. They illustrate particular moments in the narrative and enhance the overall visual beauty of a work.
Hidden within the pages of scientific, historical, or poetic texts, intricately designed images have formed an integral part of Persian manuscripts since at least the thirteenth century. They illustrate particular moments in the narrative and enhance the overall visual beauty of a work.
In the latter part of the fifteenth century, the relationship between word and image became increasingly relaxed. Manuscript paintings began to occupy entire pages, while the text was relegated to small panels or eliminated altogether. This new aesthetic led in part to the development of paintings and drawings outside the context of the book.
The genre reached its zenith in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries during the rule of the powerful Safavid dynasty of Iran (1501–1722).
Literary associations, however, were never completely abandoned. Individual illustrations were assembled in albums (muraqqa’), and frequently incorporated writing or were paired with lyrical verses. Others consisted of figural compositions and poems artfully assembled into a visually coherent whole. One of the most popular subject matters consisted of idealized types, such as the handsome youth, the coy young woman, or the wise old master, already familiar from Persian poetry. By drawing on a conventionalized body of imagery, single-page compositions can be interpreted as pictorial equivalents of poetic sentiments and “visual poems” in their own right.
I hope you like it.
