Abul-Hasan Gaffari, Sani ol-Molk, was a pioneer iconographer, book illustrator and painter in Qajar Period who created many works in portraiture, book illustration and lithography. His works had deeply influence the Iranian visual arts. He was the first art student sent to Italy to study the works of the Italian masters. After return, Sani ol-Molk exhibited his sketches to his pupils, at a college which founded himself. His pupils were eminent and influential artist who created a dominant macro policy of in the next decade. Through descriptive-analysis method, the main objective of this research is to answer this question: what were the consequences of Sani ol-Molk’ educational trip to Italy and studying and copying Renascence Masters’ works? Then, this research aims to explore and compare two works of Raphael copied by Sani ol-Molk with his late portraits by means of which it evaluates this influence on Sani ol-Molk’s portraits. The enhancement of Sani ol-Molk’s artistic skills that enables him to produce spirited active portraits can be regarded among the impacts on Abulhasan Qafari’s latest paintings. The other results of Sani ol-Molk trip were the inspiration and the use of European art motives such angels and divine figures. The latter was served in late works of Sani ol-Molk to imply divine and supernatural aurora to figures. Thus, it can be seen elements in this period of the artist career that show why the painter was ordered to portraiture models.
