Safavid Style Miniature Painting, Qajar Dynasty Persia. Striking Qajar-era Persian Miniature Painting from 19.Part of a collection of twenty-one Qajar-era 19. Century Persian miniatures executed in the Safavid painting tradition. This painting was made to be kept in an album called Muraqqa. The album was extremally popular among collectors in the Islamic world, and by the end of the 16. Century became the predominant format for miniature painting in the Persian Safavid, Mughal and Ottoman empires. The muraqqa largely replaced the full-scale illustrated manuscript of classics of Persian poetry, which had been the typical vehicle for the finest miniature painters up to that time. The gold illuminated accents, facial features, outfits and the use of color papers are all indications of the Safavid painting tradition. Moderate and sporadic rubbing and age-toning along the border and edges as well as few signs of ageing on the miniature. Miniature in overall fair condition.
