Even today, many contemporary artists indulge in doing this kind of painting. The visual opulence of these paintings is great, with emphasis being given to fine details which are done by using a very fine brush and a very experienced hand. Although these paintings are small in size as the name implies, yet you will have to gaze at them for hours to be able to study the infinite level of detailing in every inch of the painting.
How the Paintings Look Like
Usually, Persian Miniature involves vivid colors which are dominated by shades of silver and gold. Layers are skillfully employed in this form of painting to give the works three-dimensional effect. You can see some elements in the background, overlapped by others in the foreground.
Persians have developed a distinct style, which has also found prominence in many neighboring places. You can see many natural and realistic motifs in the paintings, which are very original. Similar concepts can be found in the Mughal miniature in India and Ottoman miniature in Turkey. Chinese influence can be felt in some of the miniature paintings in Iran.
