Aim of the study is the comparison of woman’s portrait in the paintings of Iranian women or men. The study shows that the pictures of women in men’s works are desirable, descriptive, and figural; whereas women painters are more meaningful, allegoric and fictional; they paint females’ characterizations and implicit and mental meanings as beauty and elegance. But the women paintings are based on female experience and view; women painters try to show main problems of women’s life; however, men without paying attention to these matters present women in imaginary and fantasy atmospheres. The study of women paintings shows that they try to decrease visual views of male standpoint. They resist on becoming the subject of men’ paintings and they use new techniques in paintings to create gaps in male mental effects and functions in culture.
