About the artist:

Hossein Behzad was the great innovator of Iranian art in the middle of the twentieth century. His early work, such as the present painting, was in the style of the old masters of Persian painting of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, such as Kamal al-Din Behzad and Reza 'Abbasi. In 1934 he left Tehran for Paris and stayed for thirteen months, during which time he studied various Eastern and Western painting styles at the Louvre, Guimet Museum and Versailles. During this trip he developed a completely new style of miniature painting, which fused aspects of traditional Persian painting with contemporary trends from the West. Through this new style he hoped to save miniature painting from oblivion.
