Ruyin Pakbaz and Yaghoub Emdadian (eds.) Pioneers of Iranian Modern Art: Mansoureh Hosseini, Tehran, 2004 (p. 60, illustrated in colour)


Mansoureh Hosseini's abstract compositions include certain traditional Iranian visual elements, which recal the rythmic curves of calligraphy. Hosseini's works are somewhat more painterly than those of other Iranian artists -they are highly textured, built up by layer upon layer of thick impasto and executed in carefully matched harmonious colours.
