Making the selection decision on the top 50 most influencers of Iranian art history is not an easy task to tackle.

In order to make such selection the ZH Magazine came together with artists, art experts, and university art professors to evaluate and finalize the top 50 list.
As a result, some might have made it to the list who are not necessary the best of the best or the most well known ones.
But most certainly an influencer in the arts of Iran.
In the last 100 years there have been many well qualified candidates to make the top influencer list, which makes nominating only 50 of them not an easy undertaking.
