Haft-Owrang is one of the poems of the Ninth-Century poet, Abdol-Rahman Jami. An important illustrated version of Haft Owrang is called Sultan Ibrahim Mirza`s Version that is a master piece of Miniature, which has been illustrated by the artists of Mashhad school. The story of “Saint Josef's Survival from the Well” is one of the Haft-Owrang`s subjects illustrated by artists at the time. This paper is going to compare Jami's poems with the paintings of "Saint Josef`s survival from the well", attributed to Mozafar–Ali by descriptive-comparative method. It studies whether the literary style and figures of speech of Jami have affected the illustration of this painting, and measures the percentage of this influence through quantitative scales. It concludes that 22% of paintings are in line with the poems, while 78% of them are not. This shows the freedom of illustrators in their act of illustrating, their independency towards the poems, and their use of imagination, environment, and visage in creation of these works.
