This Iranian painting depicts a scene in an old Persian bazaar. The Persian carpets are arranged vertically, surrounded by Persian fruits. The emphasis is on the strong light and shade, showing the outside intense light of an Iranian mid-summer day juxtaposed with the cool shade inside a Persian bazaar.
This bazaar is located in Isfahan, the center of the Persian arts. The old bazaars are the center for merchants and tradesmen selling Persian wares and artworks.
