A reader writes:
One of the Persian women I am fortunate to have as family introduced me to the art of Feeroozeh Golmohammadi. A very highly regarded painter in Iran and elsewhere, she is credited with modernizing Persian miniature painting. She draws from Persian mythology and literature for her art. A primary theme is women. They are imbued with the strength, beauty and vibrancy of her culture.
A second reader highlights the work of another Iranian painter, realist Iman Maleki.
