Isfahan School

Isfahan was the seat of the last great school of Persian miniature painting, at its height in the early 17th century under the patronage of Shah Abbas I. the purity of color, elegance of poses, emphasis on details, and vigor of the individual figure are the main characteristic of this style. Bridge skies, the beauty of flowers, and human begins dressed in splendid garments form the general themes of the Safavid painting.

Another feature of the Safavid painting is an interest in depicting the minor events of daily life.

During the Safavid period, precious manuscripts declined in number, supplanted in part by a proliferation of single-page drawings that appealed to a less sophisticated audience. Artists serving royalty no longer made their living based on the royal patronage alone.

Some sold their works to minor patrons and even to merchants, who carried the pages to the Bazaars of India and Turkey.

Signed work became the rule, rather than the exception it had been in earlier times. This may be became the connoisseurs of the previous epochs had not needed a signature in order to identify the artist. They could easily distinguish the hand of a certain master merely by his artistic individuality.

The leading master of the Isfahan schools was Reza Abbasi (and many painters of the Isfahan school imitated his style
