Neda Notash• Reverse painter on glass•
Reverse painting on glass is an art form consisting of applying paint to a piece of glass and then viewing the image by turning the glass over and looking through the glass at the image. Another term used to refer to the art of cold painting and gilding on the back of glass is verre églomisé, named after the French decorator Jean-Baptiste Glomy (1711–۸۶), who framed prints using glass that had been reverse-painted.
This art form has been around for many years. It was widely used for sacral paintings since the middle Ages. In Iran, the art form had humble beginnings but gradually became popular in the royal court in the previous centuries. From then on, images of royal women and scenes of feasting or hunting appeared on the back of the glass. The first known sample of reverse painting in Iran includes beautiful birds & flowers that were often depicted on mirror or glass their construction dates back to the Zand period. Over the time, in Qajar era ,the painting behind glass & mirror with the pattern of birds and flowers became popular
