This magnificent painting by Nasser Ovissi demonstrates the strength of his early work. The subject matter and style is drawn from an Iranian tradition that stretches back to the early Islamic era and beyond, the horse resembling those on Sassanian stone reliefs and silverware, and those of Seljuq ceramics, as well as bearing a realation to the “coffee house” paintings from the earlier part of the twentieth century. Thee are decorated with patterns from carved wooden blocks (qalamkar) and embellished with abstracted calligraphy.
