TEHRAN.(Iranart) – A group exhibition of landscape painting opened at Fereshteh Art Gallery in Tehran on Friday.
“A Timeless Journey in Landscape” includes works of 27 artists with a focus on natural scenery and landscapes, ILNA reported.
Painter and curator Tala Ranjbaran has collected the works. Participating painters include Roshanak Nouri, Vahid Beikverdi, Sanaz Shafaqi, Shahrokh Khajeh-Nouri and Yasin Kazemi.

Early paintings with such style were found in old Greece in 1500 BC. It continued during the Dutch Golden Age in the 17th century as well as 19th and 20th centuries with works of Romantic painters like Casper David Friedrich, impressionists like Vincent Van Gogh and modernist David Hockney.
