Nasser Ovissi, 'Iranian, Born 1934' "Arabian Horses Triptych" Oil on Canvas.A rare and important set of three paintings (Triptych) by Persian Artist Nasser Ovissi who is considered to be known as the "Picasso of Iran".A true modern Iranian masterpiece depicting Arabian Horses painted in blue, orange, and red backgrounds on one half, and 24K gold leaf oil paint on the top half. Very unique.Oil on canvas.Signed.Canvas Size: 30" high x 24" wide each.Nasser Ovissi is an American-Iranian painter whose work is characterized by stylized figures of Arabic women and horses.

The artist has achieved numerous awards and honors, including being exhibited at the 1959 Paris Biennial and a grand prize at the 1962 Biennale of fine arts of Tehran.
