Tehran exhibit hangs landscapes by Iranian modern painters

TEHRAN, (IRANART)- Landscapes by several eminent modern Iranian painters are currently on display in an exhibition at Tehran’s Mah-e Mehr Gallery.

Entitled “A Lyrical Approach to Painting”, works by six modern Iranian artists Sohrab Sepehri, Behjat Sadr, Nasser Assar, Hossein Kazemi, Abolqasem Saeidi and Manuchehr Yektai are on display, highlighting the beautiful scenery as seen through the eyes of each artist. 

Each artist has had his/her specific approach towards nature and has portrayed what he/she has seen through using special techniques, the gallery has announced in a press release.

The exhibit also puts emphasis on the viewpoint of each artist, while the paintings reveal the world view of the artists.

For example, Sepehri has been seeking only beauty in his works, and ugliness has no position in his world.

In works by Bejat Sadr, light and shadow play key roles and tree trunks reveal metamorphosis in the nature, while Kazmei uses simple plates moving towards abstract forms.

The exhibit will be running until March 10 at the gallery located at No. 7, Nilufar St., off Africa Ave.
