Charcoal Seller

Charcoal Seller

22" x 15"
Watercolor on handmade paper
Iris giclee Persian art print available: $325.00

The painterly technique of watercolor depicts the simplicity of an Iranian shopkeeper. The composition of this Iranian watercolor is arranged so that in the foreground the charcoal is observed first and in the background columns divide the Iranian charcoal seller with his ancient Persian scale. At the top of the painting a simplified horizontal form indicates the roll-up metal shop door of this old Iranian store. This artwork is one of my favorite Persian paintings.
