Ali-Naqi Vaziri (1887, Tehran, Iran – September 9, 1979) was a musicologist, composer, a celebrated player of the tar, and the founder of the Academy of Music of Iran as well of Iran's National Orchestra.
Ali-Naqi Vasiri (better known as Colonel Ali-Naqi Vasiri) is one of the seven children of Musa Khan Vaziri (a prominent official in the Persian Cossack Brigade) and Bibi Khatoon Astarabadi, a notable Iranian writer, satirist and one of the pioneering figures in the women's movement of Iran; her book Ma'ayeb al-Rejal (Failings of Men, also translated as Vices of Men) is considered by some as the first declaration of women's rights in the modern history of Iran. The celebrated artistic painter Hasan Vaziri is Ali-Naqi's brother.
Ali-Naqi Vaziri was a master of Iran's classical music so that he was able to play the tar in a style very reminiscent of that of Mirza Abdollah. He always looked for new dimensions and perspectives in musical expression, and by doing so he revolutionized the style of playing the tar. He was the first to transcribe the classical radif of the Persian music.

The art of teahouse painting The art of teahouse painting Presentation Transcript

  • The art of teahouse painting
  • Persian teahouses have served various functions in different eras of their 400-year history. They used to be placed where men gathered to spend their leisure time listening to naqqals (Iranian traditional storytellers) reciting Shahnameh, a magnum opus by the renowned classical Persian poet Abolqasem Ferdowsi, which were depicted on paintings hung on the walls of the teahouses. It was in the teahouses that people talked and exchanged views and together with lutis (wise and generous people) helped the poor.
  • The art of teahouse painting emerged from within such an atmosphere.
  • Teahouse painters listened to the discussions and tales and used them as subjects for their paintings.
  • They also enjoyed a unique perspective and painted imaginary scenes using epics, traditions and religion as the themes for their artwork drawn on the walls.
  •  
  • Teahouse painting is a form of art which embodies some elements of miniature painting.
  • The works painted in this style mostly depict religious and national events.
  • Religious stories and Iranian epic legends feature prominently in this distinct style of visual arts.
  • With their own unique perspective, artists of this genre draw motifs based entirely on their imagination
  •  
  • The Tehran Museum of Contemporary Arts is considered to have the largest collection of valuable Western modern art outside of Europe and the United States.
