The Art of Mahmoud Farshchian



 My lovely daughter in law, Neda is just back home from a visit to her family in Tehran. While she was there she visited a local art museum with her Mom and sent me back a few photos - I was awe struck! The colors,details and subject matter of these paintings is incredible! The art is by Mahmoud Farshchian.
 The museum is just five minutes from Neda's Mom's house, so they were able to spend a day there together,enjoying each other and catching up,as it had been almost 2 years since Neda last saw her Mom.

My wonderful daughter in law-Neda

Two beautiful ladies!
  Neda explained to me, the Master Artist, Mahmoud Farshchian's art is so revered that what once was a gallery of his pieces is now a museum on permanent display.

Farshchian's paintings are exquisite and truly a feast for the eyes and so I just had to share with you!
The Farshchian museum is located in 
Sa'ad Abad Palace Garden just north of Tehran City.

All photos of Mahmoud's paintings were taken at the Farshchian museum.
These are just a few of his works of art; if you would like to view others and learn more of Mahmoud Farshchian and his art I have added a few links below~


I would like to thank my sweet daughter in law,Neda, for knowing me so well to know how I would appreciate viewing this wonderful art and for her sharing it with me!

And thank you my friends for stopping in today!
