Sepehri, Sohrab

Canyon, 1963

Image for Canyon, 1963

Sepehri’s admiration for nature is evident in abstract landscapes such as Canyon, whose sandy tones and deep ochers were inspired by the natural colors of the desert beyond Kashan. In 1970 Sepehri spent almost a year in New York, but he ultimately returned to Iran, feeling alienated among the bustling metropolitan streets.
