 Morgan. Shah Isma'il I
After the death of the Timurid Shah Rukh in 850/1447 he took advantage of the political confusion to invade Transoxania, though he was unable to establish himself there.
If the shah's loss of personal status was as serious as is sometimes maintained, one might have expected the Safawid state to have collapsed in the aftermath of the Ottoman victory, but in fact nothing of the sort occurred.
The position of the Safawid shah, a ruler who claimed descent from the imams and regarded himself- and was officially regarded - as their representative on earth, was not one that could easily be reconciled with Twelver Shi'i theology and law.

Shah Rukh, Timur's son, ruled (1409–46) the eastern empire, including Khorasan and Transoxiana (region E of the Amu Darya, or Oxus, River).
This cultural rebirth had a double character; on one hand, there was a renewal of Persian civilization and art (distinguished by extensive adaptations from the Chinese), and on the other, an original national literature in the Turk-Jagatai language, which borrowed from Persian sources.
Shah Rukh was succeeded by his son, Ulugh Beg (ruled 1447–49).

Shah Rukh’s refusal to subscribe to the Chinese worldview forced the Chinese to approach him by a new path, as the shift in tone of the letters from China between 1410 and 1418 shows.

The most notable feature of the new Timurid style (although derived from the earlier Ilkhan period) is a new conception of space.
Relatively little high quality metalwork has survived from the Timurid dynasty, though again miniatures of the period (whose obsessive detail makes them an excellent guide to contemporary objects) show that ewers with long curved spouts were developed at this time.
However, it is certain that the Timurid capitals (Mashad and Herat in Khurassan, Bukhara and Samarkand in Central Asia) possessed large factories, where not only the magnificent tiles that decorated buildings of the period were produced, but also pottery.

As Timurid power in Transoxiana faltered after the deaths of Shah Rukh and Ulugh Beg, the city ceased to be as important as it had been.
Interestingly enough, one of the principle Timurid builders was Gawhar Shad, Shah Rukh's wife, who was responsible for a magnificent mosque at Meshed (built between 1405 and 1418) and a mosque-madrasah-mausoleum complex in Herat (1417-1437).
However, the Timurids still continued to build in their founder's capital, especially Ulugh Beg, who was governor of the city under his father, Shah Rukh.

 Iransaga - Persian Art, The Timurids   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
In the time of Shah Rukh and Oleg Begh the art of miniature reached such a degree of perfection that it served as a model for all subsequent schools of painting in Persia.
The first Herat miniatures were in form, a more perfect version of the early Timurid style, which had blossomed at the beginning of the century.
Their style is distinguished by sumptuous colours, an almost incredible precision of detail, perfect unity of composition, striking individual characterisation of the human figure, and an utmost sensibility in conveying atmosphere from the solemn to the playfulness of narrative painting.
