Isfahan artists

Arts of Esfahan The “Esfahan period” covers a span of about 125 years from 1598, when Shah Abbas the Great transferred the Iranian capital to Esfahan, to the city’s conquest in 1722 by the Afghans. Without a doubt, it is the highest point of Esfahans long, rich history of art.
Architecture and art developed in Esfahan on three main levels: the refined, the monumental, and the utilitarian.
