Biography   Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian


"Monir Farmanfarmaian, 96, Dies; Artist Melded Islam and the Abstract," Obituary, The New York Times online, by Jason Farago, April 29, 2019

Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, an Iranian artist whose mirror-encrusted geometric compositions drew on both Islamic architecture and the abstractions of the postwar New York avant-garde, died on April 20 in Tehran. She was 96.

The death was confirmed by a grandson, Aziz Isham.

Ms. Farmanfarmaian (pronounced far-mahn-far-MY-ahn) emerged as a key actor in the worldwide development of abstract art in recent years, as curators of American and European museums began to map a global history of postwar painting and sculpture.
