Sohrab Sepehri Iranian
Not on view
Sohrab Sepehri was a poet and painter, studying first at the School of Fine Arts at Tehran University. His later training with Japanese painters becomes evident in pieces such as this small watercolor. His subdued palette and direct brushwork reflect the Zen philosophy that so influenced him in both verse and painting. The simple forms suggest a landscape, perhaps that of his native town, Kashan. Beyond this, his work shows his great respect and humility before nature.
