Persian Painted Tile Work From the 18th and 19th Centuries free pdf The manufacture of colourfully painted tiles has a long tradition in haft rang (seven colours) tiles from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. During this time, the art of making tiles experienced a revival, starting in the city of Shiraz and initiated primarily by unknown artists who wanted to preserve and carry on their country's traditions. Their vibrantly coloured tiles, with underglaze, decorated private homes, as well as public and religious buildings. The tiles are characterised by a wealth of pictorial elements, with floral motifs as well as motifs from traditional Persian folktales. Social change and a disregard for Iranian architecture and traditions at the beginning of the twentieth century led to the destruction of many old town quarters and to the disappearance of this impressive art. Hadi Seif visited the direct descendants of the tile makers and presents his findings in this book.
