Photographer's Note

coffee-house painting (1)
As an original school seeking to preserve the identity of the valuable standards and fundaments of Iranian artistry , " coffee- house " painting came into being , thanks to the judiciouse efforts, of anonymous, unpretentious popular artists , during the early 20th century , when Iranian painting , with all its mature.
Proficient past , was undergoing an inevitable decline due to the situation prevailing in Iranian art and culture.
On the one hand , following the return of a host of Iranian artists from European countries and their ensuing dissemination of Western painting manners which contrasted with the rules and principles of Iranian painting , the very roots of the country 's traditional art were threatened of collapse, and on the other , notwithstanding the persistent fidelity of traditionalist Iranian painters to preservation of the standards of traditional Iranian art , and in reason of their overall unwillingness or lack of interest to assume a new outlook upon Iranian art , a general trend of stagnation in the sterile repetition of time-honoured masterpieces was insidiously gaining ground .
