The brushes were made of cats’ or sables’ fur and the colors were taken from plants and mineral substances. Nowadays the art of Negārgarī has evolved and become more modern; the schools of Shiraz and Harāt have contributed to this

transformation with their outstanding and distinctive features. One of the most distinguished artists of Iranian miniature and a national glory is Mahmūd Farshchīān, whose artistic, inventive and characteristic methods and masterpieces are well-known all over the world.
