A Persian Miniature Painting By Badri Borghei. 11" x 14". About Artist: Badri Borghei is a well known Persian Miniature painter and artist. She was born in Tehran, Iran on April 24, 1941. She began her training at the age of 12 when she attended Petgar Art School and Kamal-al-Mulk Fine Arts Institute. She then continued her artistic education at National Art Academy in Washinton, D. C. and Otis Parson's Art Institute in Los Angeles. She was drawn to the ancient form of Persian Miniature paintings in 1960 and thereafter decided to dedicate herself to this type of artwork. Her medium is watercolor, and the technique is pointillism using only very fine sable brushes to enhance the detail in her work. In 1997 Borghei received a proclamation from Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan when she was recognized by the YWCA of Greater Los Angeles as being an "Incredible Woman Making History."
