    By Nasser Ovissi
    Located in New York, NY
    Nasser Ovissi, (Iranian, Born 1934) "Four Seated Girls" oil on canvas painting Very fine quality painting by Persian Artist Nasser Ovissi who is considered to be known as the "Picasso of Iran". A true modern Iranian masterpiece depicting four Safavid style seated girls dressed in blue, purple, and yellow clothing with a bowl of Pomegranates and fruits in a white background. Oil on canvas, framed. Signed. Canvas Size: 30" high x 40" wide Nasser Ovissi is an American-Iranian painter whose work is characterized by stylized figures of Arabic women and horses. Set amidst geometric patterns and decorative elements, his figures seem to merge into and out of the space behind them. “My work is dedicated to the beauty of life and I hope those who experience my work will walk away with an experience of beauty.” Born in Tehran, Iran in 1934, Ovissi studied Law and Political Sciences at the University of Tehran before studying Fine art at Beaux Fine Art in Rome. The artist has achieved numerous awards and honors, including being exhibited at the 1959 Paris Biennial and a grand prize at the 1962 Biennale of fine arts of Tehran.
