Abstract: 

With the decline of the Safavid Empire and the beginning of the Afshar dynasty, Persia came across a critical situation with the attack from Afghans from the east and the Ottomans from the west. Therefore, in this period, art and artists received little attention. However, a pictorial book was modified in this period by the name of Nadir’s World Conqueror History. What makes the illustration of this book magnificent is that it is one of the last books illustrated in this period of Persian art. Also in this book the first sparks of the Persian school can be seen. The illustrations in this book have nourished Persian paintings for over 200 years. In this school, a vast number of artistic characteristics revived from the Seljuk era have been applied. On the other hand, the visual characteristics of this book is closely related with the main concept (military-political) of the book.
This essay will answer the following questions:
What are the visual and abstract features in the paintings of Nadir’s World Conqueror History?
How did the visual aspects and techniques of Persian painting manipulate the next era of art?
And will cover the following aims:
Recognizing the methods applied in this manuscript and its influence on other works of art in other periods.
Achieving the abstract meanings and themes hidden within the paintings.
