Biographical / Historical
A Persian miniature is a small painting, whether a book illustration or a separate work of art intended to be kept in an album of such works. The techniques are broadly comparable to the Western and Byzantine traditions of miniatures in illuminated manuscripts, which probably had an influence on the origins of the Persian tradition.The art of miniature painting in Persia [now Iran] flourished from the 13th through the 16th centuries. Having been taken from their context, the specific location and date of their original creation or use is difficult to determine.
