Ghahveh Khaneh Painting

This style of painting represents the tradition of realism in Persian art, striving for truthfulness in form and detail. The works of the Ghahveh Khaneh were most influenced by the literary masterpiece Shahnameh Ferdowsi, which provided the main subject of illustration for the early Ghahveh Khaneh artists.
 
The epic Shahnameh, which retells the great heroic myths of Persian literature, grounded the Ghahveh Khaneh style in a desire to depict reality for its own sake, devoid of abstraction and surrealism. Thus, the Ghahveh Khaneh can be viewed as a "return to logical art" for Persian painters, an effort to preserve the rich tradition and history of Persia through representations of its great literature.
 
To the outside observer, the Ghahveh Khaneh seem most distinct for their obvious reverence of religion and piety in human figures. This can be attributed to the advent of postcolonial and postmodern strains of thought in Oriental academic circles, inciting a resurgence of national pride in a Persian culture long at the mercy of imperialist co-optation.
