Abstract: 

Women's representation in Isfahan school was idealistic but more naturalistic and it emphasized on material aspects in Qajar era. These differences were based on social situations and included: the influences from Europe, independence of literature from art and also new clients.
This article is about portrayal of women and their features in Isfahan school in Safavid era and figurative paintings in Qajar era, plus the analysis of differences between women's representations in these two schools. The article answers the following questions: What are the women's features and their differences in Safavid and Qajar schools? What factors influenced the representations of women's figures in these two schools? We concluded that some reasons like European influences, clients of paintings and their personal desires affected women's representations.The artist in Safavid era Isfahan tried to create an idealistic and spiritual picture of women based on his literary heritage but in Qajar paintings women were represented without veil and modesty which served the pleasure of men or functioned decoratively. The applied research method is descriptive _ analytical with historical approach via library data collection.
