TEHRAN – Reza Abbasi Museum in northcentral Tehran will host a retrospective of works by Reza Mohammadi to turn the spotlight on 25-year career of the Iranian artist.

The exhibit aims to support the “declining art”, which Mohammadi debuted in the country some 25 years ago under the auspices of the Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, CHTN reported on Sunday.

His exhibits of replicas was highly acclaimed in the past, however, it is becoming somewhat forgotten over the recent years, the report added.
