Out of the blue
A few weeks ago I was at an Iranian street festival in New York. It was the first ever held there, and it showed. Thousands showed up , but there weren't many booths offering any services.
As I was looking through the books on a table, I came across a thin booklet, Manoucher Yektai; Paintings 1951-1997 ( 1998 Guild Hall Museum, New York).

I had no doubt in my mind that Yektai is not just an excellent Iranian artist, but among the very best in the world... go to feature
