Monir Museum

Tehran | Iran

About the Museum

The Monir Museum at the historic Negarestan Park gardens in Tehran is the first museum dedicated to a solo female artist - Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian - who has received widespread international attention during decades of exile from Iran. The museum displays 51 works, including Farmanfarmaian's signature mirror mosaics, abstract monotypes and reverse glass paintings, inspired by geometric patterns germane to ancient Iranian architecture, particularly those seen in mosques.

All the pieces on display in the museum have recently been donated by Farmanfarmaian to its permanent collection, which is managed by Tehran University.
