عنوان مقاله [English]
Although Abul Hasan Mostofi Qafari as the first painter in the succession of Qafari family painters is of significance importance, what makes him stand out even from other Iranian artists in the field of illustration is his dual life as both a historian and court secretary and an expert painter. This issue opens a new approach in relation to the explanation of his personality, thoughts and art. Therefore, it is intended to conduct an iconological study on his works in the range of modern qualitative-historical studies and by adopting an iconographic approach through the comparative study of the valuable historical text left by him (Golshan Murad) and other documentary texts. It is also intended to review and revise the existing comments and analyses related to his works while explaining the angles of his art and thoughts and analyzing the works left. In this way, it is specified that to what extent can the generalization of direct sensory perceptions based on personal undifferentiated experience be misleading and incorrect in the deviation of the hidden meaning in works of art.
