By Iranian Artist, Nooshin Ipaktchi. 

‘’Nooshin’s paintings are inspired by tales from her grandparents / Influenced by stories she was told as a child, elements of the Qajar dynasty are a central theme to her subject matter / In particular, women from the Qajar dynasty make up her subjects / Nooshin aims to bring back to life the history of women from the bygone era, ranging from powerful mothers, daughters, keepers and decision makers.’’
