Abstract: 
Qajar era was a period marked by the invasion of modern world symbols and the struggle of Iranian traditions with explicit undeniable influences on the art of this era. Influenced by western art, Iranian paintings of this period shifted from imaginary miniatures to a more realistic point of view.
Along with Qajar painting, another trend appeared in this historic era of painting known by painters' society as coffeehouse painting. The advent of such paintings was created due to the need and public request and by respecting their beliefs while keeping logical values of Iranian religious and traditional painting alive.
Based on library researches, the present essay aims to study, characterize and compare technical and thematic elements of coffeehouse and court paintings in early Qajar revolving around historical and ceremonial themes. Findings suggest similarities in structure and furbish of the work. Authors hope this very brief work will contribute to more comprehensive and professional studies in order to provide us with higher level of understanding compared to what we already know.
