Akefeh von Koerber (Akefeh Monchi-Zadeh) painted since her earliest youth and was never unfaithful to miniature painting, although she was open to all painting techniques and used completely different formats depending on the chosen subject.
In miniature painting she processed her own childhood and youth experiences. What seems (and sometimes is) fairy-tale like to the European viewer is based on visual impressions and experiences from the reality of her Persian homeland. Whoever has seen the colourfully dressed women in the rice fields of northern Iran or the members of the Qaschqai people in the south of the country is reminded by the miniatures of the colourfully dressed people of the multi-ethnic state of Iran.
