A cursory glance at the history of art reveals that social, political and economic conditions have always played a major role in the emergence of new artistic trends and styles.
The modern art movement in Iran had its genesis in the late 1940s and early 1950s. This was the period after the death of famous Persian painter, Kamal-ol-molk (1852–1940) and thus symbolically the end of a rigid adherence to academic painting.
