A compact and popular form of a survey of the long period comprised in the history of Persian painting, but also provides the basis of an extended study of a very fascinating subject. Reader can obtain an orderly conception of the development of a school of painting whose rare qualities of design and decoration are reflected in many fields of craftsmanship in Persia and in other countries of the Near and far East.
