The Persian Miniature
Miniature painting became a significant Persian genre in the 13th century, receiving Chinese influence after the Mongol conquests, and the highest point in the tradition was reached in the 15th and 16th centuries. The tradition continued, under some Western influence, after this, and has many modern exponents. The Persian miniature was the dominant influence on other Islamic miniature traditions, principally the Ottoman miniature in Turkey, and the Mughal miniature in the Indian sub-continent.
This piece was acquired advertised as being made after a miniature painting by Mahmoud Farshian (More about Mahmoud Farshchian).
However our research has revealed that another renowned artist, Joe Hautman (More about Joe Hautman) who painted the exact same painting below, we are however not sure whether this painting was the original or a reproduction:
Joe Hautman’s first experience as a professional artist came after he won the Federal Duck Stamp contest in 1991. Although he had never sold a painting, he suddenly found himself visiting President George H. Bush in the Oval office, and receiving honors for his artistic achievements.
From an early age Joe loved to draw and paint, but he soon became fascinated by the sciences as well. His artistic talents took a back seat during his academic career. He studied physics and astronomy at the University of Minnesota, and eventually earned a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from the University of Michigan. In the midst of an active research career, Joe began to enter the Federal Duck Stamp contest as a way to exercise his artistic skills. His surprise victory in the 1991 contest provided the incentive he needed to return professionally to his first love. He now paints full-time and finds his art career as challenging and fulfilling as his science research. Joe again won the Federal contest for the 2002, 2008 and 2012 duck stamps, and recently became a five-time winner with his rendition of Trumpeter Swans which will be on the 2016-17 stamp.
Joe lives Plymouth, Minnesota. His work features a variety of North American animals as well as tigers and other wildlife. The well researched detail and accurate naturalistic settings in his paintings are a reflection of his scientific background, as well as his reverence for the wildlife and their habitat

Mahmoud Farshchian (Persian: محمود فرشچیان, Mahmud Faršciyân; born January 24, 1930) is a master of Persian painting and miniatures. He was born in the city of Isfahan in Iran, and it was here where he started to learn art, painting and sculpting.
His masterpieces have been hosted by several museums and exhibitions worldwide. He is the most prominent moderniser of the field of miniatures, an art form which was first established in Ancient Persiaand later spread to China and Turkey and other Middle eastern countries.

Growing up, Mahmoud Fasrchian was surrounded by many architectural masterpieces that gradually and subliminally sharpened his awareness of proportion, color, and form. At the age of five, it became evident that his life would be devoted to art and painting. Mahmoud’s father, the owner of a leading carpet business, encouraged his interest in design and planted the seeds of art in Mahmoud’s heart.
While still in school, Farshchian was invited to learn painting from the famous masters of the time. After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Isfahan, he traveled to Europe to study the works of Western artists. Upon his return to Isfahan, Mahmoud began working in the General Office of Fine Arts (later the Ministry of Culture and Art). He was later appointed to the position of administrator of National Arts. It was then that he joined the Faculty of Fine Arts of Tehran University as an art professor. It was there that he created many of his unique masterpieces.
Master Farshchian, has achieved a distinctive style and created a school of his own in painting. Some of his talents are his wonderful sense of creativity, his motive designs, his creation of round spaces, his smooth and powerful lines, and his creation of undulating colors. Farshchian’s works are a pleasing composition of both nobility and innovation. His themes are cultivated from classic poetry, literature, the Koran, Christian and Jewish Holy books, as well as his own deep imagination. His most outstanding works are based on human affections and moods, which appear most effectively in graceful faces and figures.
While painting, Farshchian often listens to music and these beautiful rhythms set the mood for his bounding, splashing, sometimes wire-thin brush. His pictures urge us to listen with inner ears to “sounds” as architectonic as his lines and forms. There is a rich interplay of gentle sounds: birdcalls, trickles, cascades, gurgles, swoops, and swooshes. His tempests, chilling blasts, raging fires, and blood-curdling cries are expressed so artfully that they never cross the threshold of true horror. So graceful is the whiplash that it cannot sting. Farshchian has told many tales on canvas in his unique expression of sur-naturalism.
