Family has several shops in town, I know at least of three of them, run by the children of the painter. I visit the shops every year when I am in Esfahan. I personnally like the miniatures of the father himself, but he doesn't seem to paint a lot anymore. Most of the miniatures (and other paintings) are from his students who are gradually taking over I guess. Prices are high, but they take creditcards. Certainly worth a visit. They didn't steal their great reputation !

You will find cheaper miniturists in Eshfahan but no finer one than Fallahi. Visited in 2013 (not March 2016 in the drop down list) and happy to see he is still there.

Talented artist with skill, its a family run business/shop. The prices can be steep. We bought a miniature for US65. You can pay using your international credit card in this shop.
