While nourished by ancient Persian culture, the Safavid artists were strongly influenced by Turkmen culture due to the origins of the dynasty, as well as Chinese, Ottoman, and Western cultures. The Safavid Empire was one of the most significant ruling dynasties of Iran. They ruled one of the greatest Persian empires, with artistic accomplishments, since the Muslim conquest of Persia.

Famous quotes containing the word art:

    Is man no more than this? Consider him well. Thou ow’st the worm no silk, the beast no hide, the sheep no wool, the cat no perfume. Here’s three on’s are sophisticated. Thou art the thing itself; unaccommodated man is no more than such a poor, bare, forked animal as thou art.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
