Persian literature is one of the richest and most influential cultural fields in Iran and the world with masterpieces having always been praised in the East and in the West. For a long time, Iranian painting and Persian literature has had close relations and each one has been a source of inspiration for the other. The main question in this research is how much Farshchian, the Iranian miniaturist, has benefited from the Persian literature in his work? Also, why and how has the artist benefited from literature and, in general, how has been Farshchian's approach towards the Persian literature? The purpose of this study is first to explain the extent of the artist's inspiration gained from Persian literature, and then his approach towards this field. This research is of a theoretical and descriptive-analytical method done with a hermeneutical and synthetic approach. Library methods of gathering information, field information and data analysis methods have also been applied quantitatively and qualitatively in this respect. The results show that in addition to the significance of Persian literature and the way the artist has benefited from this field, Farschchian's approach towards the Persian literature has had a purposeful and gradual course of dependence towards independence. He has been under the domination of great Iranian poets and sought to reflect the objective world and the visual narrative of the Persian poets' thoughts, but has shown a gradual shift in the narrative of his inner world.
