    Posted: 07-Dec-2006 at 11:32
The themes of Persian miniature are mostly related to the Persian mythology and poetry. Western artists discovered the Persian miniature in the beginning of the 20th century. Persian miniatures uses pure geometry and vivid palette. The allure of Persian miniature painting lies in its absorbing complexities and in the surprising way it speaks to large questions about the nature of art and the perception of its masterpieces.

It is difficult to trace the origins of the art of Persian miniature, as it reached its peak mainly during the Mongol and Timurid periods (13th - 16th Century). Mongolian rulers of Iran instilled the cult of Chinese painting and brought with them a great number of Chinese artisans. Paper itself, reached Persia from China in 753 AD. Hence, the Chinese influence is very strong.

They date back to well before the Mongol invasions and are resultant from a mix of Sino-Iranian culture facilitated through long standing trade between the two ancient states.
 
In Spartakus's thread in the Ancient forum regarding Sassanid influences on Western Chinese provinces, I posted a link with a lot of information on Sino-Iranian trade. Check it out.
