Goings on about town: Behjat Sadr

The New Yorker

In an article published by The New Yorker, author Jennifer Krasinski presents an enchanting overview of the work of the late Iranian abstract artist Behjat Sadr. The article writes that “Sadr's artistic journey, spanning from the 1950s to the 1980s, showcased her passion for experimentation. Employing fluid forms and meticulous handwork, Sadr masterfully balanced chance, and choice in her creations. Later in her life, illness curtailed her ability to paint, leading her to craft haunting collages depicting surreal, desolate landscapes—more visions than real locations. Sadr's art truly reflects the essence of her life experiences and observations.”
