Where can I find more paintings from Iran during the 1800s?

Unfortunately there is no website or a dedicated place to Iranian paintings from that era but you can google “Qajar era art” or “Persian miniature”. You can find a great number of paintings from 1800’s that way. Good luck. i wish I could help more.
