In new structures, women roles were based on their social position and class. Also, children who were near their mothers received more calm, safety and also education. These factors encouraged painters to draw the pictures of women and children in their paintings. The goal of present study is determining the social status of woman and child in Shah Tahmasb period based on charts of Tahmasbi’s Shahnamen and Jami’s Haft Orang (the most exquisite painting in mentioned period). With no previous research in this field, we try to answer to this question: “What are visual features of drawing the role of women and children corpus in charts of these two manuscripts? and “Is this indicative of their different social classes?” In this research, from each mentioned period, 5 charts in different subjects have been surveyed which are the indicative of the role of woman and child in courts and other social classes. This research has been written by descriptive– analytical approach and collecting practice is library. From survey and adaptation of these charts we found that drawing woman and child picture in charts of Shah Tahmasbi’s manuscript which were a court manuscript is repeater of limitations of life situation of court women and noblesse but in Jami’s Haft Orang manuscript, women and children of other social classes in rural, urban environments were drawn more freely and participate in social activities.
