Moscow fair will unveil Farshchian artworks in poems

A collection of poems by Ukrainian-German poet Ansherla Werner inspired by the works of renowned Iranian painter and miniaturist maestro Mahmoud Farshchian will be unveiled at Moscow International Book Fair.

The event will be held in Moscow, Russia from September 2 to 6, 2015, Mehr News Agency reported.

The book which has been translated into Persian by Saeed Ramezani will be released by Candle and Fog Publishing Company.

The company's director, Afshin Shahneh-Tabar said 'Days of a Love', an anthology of modern Persian poems by Afshin Yadollahi, will also be unveiled at the fair.

He added that representative of the publications will attend a meeting at the fair to introduce Iranian literature.

Farshchian, born in 1930 in Isfahan, is known as the Iran's master of miniatures. His works have been displayed in numerous galleries and museums around the world such as the British Library, Freer Gallery of Art in Washington DC, Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, New York's Metropolitan Museum and Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the US.

Farshchian is the founder of his own school in Iranian painting, which adheres to classical form while making use of new techniques to broaden the scope of Iranian painting.

He has injected new life to this art form and has freed it from the symbiotic relationship it has historically had with poetry and literature, to give it an independence it had not previously enjoyed.
