Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The master painter Abu'l Hasan Ghaffari was born in 1812 in Kashan.  Ghaffari joined a family who had been practicing art for generations. At age fifteen he was apprenticed to Mihr 'Ali, assuming the role of official court painter for Muhammad Shah. From 1845-50, he studied painting in Italy and upon his return he was promoted to naqqash bashi. Ghaffari was a master draughtsman whose naturalistic style introduced an emotional realism to Qajar portraiture, combining influences from European Renai (showing 500 of 1562 characters).
