Behdjat Sadr (1924–2009) was the abstract painter of paradoxical traces, blending luxuriant nature with the sharp-edged industrial world in works that spanned the second half of the 20th century. A pioneer of visual arts in Iran, she was one of the first women artists and art teacher of her country to appear on the international biennales scene by the end of the 1950s. She offers the singular testimony of a nascent cosmopolitan modernity that emerged between Tehran, Rome and Paris, the cities where she studied, worked and exhibited. Above all, Behdjat Sadr embodies an extraordinary fusion of work and life, evident in her multiform layers of gushing and overflowing paint, which expand our vision of abstract art. Combining personal and poetic writings of the artist with press articles and critical essays, this book is the first to document both Sadr’s artistic heritage and intellectual trajectory, marked by her correspondence with renowned figures such as Sohrab Sepehri, Forough Farrokhzad, Pierre Restany, Giulio Carlo Argan…
