Sohrab SEPEHRI (1928-1980) Iranian

Untitled, from Dashte Shaghayegh series, circa 1960 Signed in Farsi (lower right) Oil on canvas - Huile sur toile 60 x 80 cm - 23.6 x 31.5 in. AED 293,800 - 367,300 Provenance Private collection Certificate Yaghoub Emdadian has confirmed the authenticity of this work Public notes Influenced by his trips to the Far East (circa 1960-1970), this painting reflects the predominance of Zen and minimalistic philosophies in Sohrab Sepehri's art, which is also prevalent in some of his poetry. The style of this work is of exquisite artistic value, for in a few magical strokes the artist has created a masterpiece, with the utmost purity and simplicity, unprecedented in Iranian painting. The evolution of this style then develops into the abstract geometrical phase of the artist's works. To the viewer the horizon is the infinite. The two strong wide strokes remind us of Rothko's works. Then we perceive the small black strokes at the top of the painting disappearing into the void. To complete the work, Sohrab Sepehri finishes with a smudged mass of reeds to the right in order to enhance the depth of the landscape. Saeed Kouros
