Though at various stages it has been affected
by Chinese and Eastern influences, Persian miniature art has
developed its own distinctive features. Whether it's being displayed
in museums, casino hotels,
or in private collections, Persian art has its own distinct features.
For instance, Iran's miniature artists are recognizable for their
emphasis on natural and realist motifs. Also worth noting is
the Persian technique of "layering" perspectives to
create a sense of space. For example, in the miniature piece
at right, the variety of views is noticeable in the arrangement
of objects: birds inhabit both the foreground and background
of the piece, with the floral objects positioned in between.
This gives the viewer a sense of threedimensional space and the
ability to focus on certain aspects of the piece to the exclusion
of others. Content and form are fundamental elements of Persian
miniature painting, and miniature artists are renowned for their
modest, subtle use of color.
