Exhibition of Contemporary Persian Paintings
Painting is probably the most vibrant form of art in contemporary Iran, with an ever-increasing number of talented artists making their mark by exhibiting works of startling originality and vigor. The impact of this outburst of creative talent can be seen in many galleries worldwide and in exhibitions in Tehran, Dubai, Paris, London and other locations. We are delighted to announce an exhibition of thirty-eight contemporary Persian paintings in Los Angeles, beginning on Saturday, February 5, 2011.

What sets this particular exhibition apart is not only the sheer range and vitality of the works displayed, but also the altruistic dedication and cultural and social responsibility manifested by all the artists in this exhibition. All the proceedings from the sale of the paintings will be donated to the Encyclopaedia Iranica Foundation, a not-for-profit institution established to support the Encyclopaedia Iranica.
The Encyclopaedia Iranica is an unprecedented, monumental undertaking, which aims at giving an accurate and well-documented account of Persian culture and history, prepared by the most eminent scholars of Iranian studies from all parts of the globe; and is generally acknowledged as one of the most important research projects of the 21st century.
The Encyclopaedia Iranica Foundation would also like to take this opportunity to record its deep gratitude to the Iranian artists who have donated their work to the Encyclopaedia, as well as the friends of Encyclopaedia Iranica who have helped in assembling these wonderful works of art in Paris and arranging their transport to California. We hope that the supporters of Persian art and the Encyclopaedia Iranica would not hesitate to take advantage of the present offer and would try to secure some of these paintings to decorate their homes or offices.
