Sadegh Tabrizi’s Untitled Painting Sold at Christie’s

Tehran: Tabrizi’s circa 1970 acrylic on canvas, valued at EUR 1,500 – EUR 2,500, fetched EUR 2,268 at auction.

The artwork was the only one by an Iranian artist among 169 lots presented at the auction that included ancient and modern art, decorative arts and design, as well as savoir-faire and luxury items.

This was the 103rd presence of Tabrizi in international auctions. His works have earlier been presented and sold at Christie’s, Sotheby’s, and Bonhams among other auctions.

Sadegh Tabrizi (1938-2017) was a pioneering figure in the Saqqahaneh School – an artistic school formed in 1960s Iran. Their style can be described as neo-traditional modern art, combining elements of Iranian folk art and culture, characterized by a heavy use of symbolism.
