A university of Iranian-Islamic Art named after the master of Persian miniature Mahmud Farshchian has been unveiled in Tehran on October 22.

According to an ISCA report, the Farshchian University of Iranian-Islamic Arts has been established by the Islamic Azad University, and opened with the presence of the head of IAU board of founders and trustees, IAU acting president, artists, professors and cultural and academic characters in a building located on Nazari Street near the University of Tehran.

The university has been established to prevent the traditional Iranian-Islamic arts from sinking into oblivion.

Farshchian’s masterpieces have been hosted by numerous museums and exhibitions worldwide. He is recognized as the most important modernizing influence in the field of miniatures. His name has been registered on Britain’s list of 2000 Outstanding Intellectuals of the 21st Century, and collectors feel it a great honor to possess one of his creations.
