Sohrab Sepehri: The Confluence of Poetry and Painting

Sohrab Sepehri: The Confluence of Poetry and Painting

In modern Persian literature and art annals, Sohrab Sepehri (October 7, 1928 – April 21, 1980) stands as a beacon of creative synthesis, a visionary who bridged the traditional with the avant-garde. Born in the historically rich city of Kashan, Iran, Sepehri's life and work were imbued with a profound sense of place and a deep reverence for nature, themes that would resonate through his poetry and paintings.
