To study Iranian painting we should turn back to millenniums BC. The most important images of Iranian cavemen is related to a cave in Lorestan, West region of Iran, called “Myrmelas” in which designs of war, hunting, and human and animal figures were drawn on its walls. In the later stages, the visual arts of Iran slowly found special features including the tendency to decoration and attention to details, use of black lines on the margins of designs, creating symmetry in drawing and other symbolic motifs. Features that during the centuries caused the emergence of many different styles of painting. This paper is an attempt to comprehend techniques and styles of Iranian painting from the beginning up to the end of Ghajar's period.
