About the print

‘Untitled’ is the only existing signed limited edition print by the internationally acclaimed artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian to date.  In this work Monir explores the possibilities and dynamism of geometric compositions. Inspired by Iranian architecture, the artist breaks down complicated geometric forms into a fine minimalist composition.  The strength in this work lies in the simplicity and confidence of line as well as succinct use of colour.  This limited edition is made of a drawing dating 1976, an artistically fruitful period for Monir as she started to explore working with mirror mosaics and marks a pivotal part in her career. The acquisition of this piece is a unique opportunity for any collection.
