Sohrab Sepehri (1928-1980) was a true Renaissance man in the Persian arts. He was equally talented as a poet and a painter. In the mid-1960s, he gave up a career in the civil service to write and paint full-time. He spent much of his time during this period abroad, living in the United States and in Paris. His acute awareness and observance of the subtleties of nature - and human existence - make his works of universal appeal. He was not only an artist in his own right, but has inspired other artists to create works in tribute to him; a few of those works are shown here.
