During the renovation of the museum’s warehouse, many of the forgotten works of art, including Picasso’s ten works, have been found in the collection of the Teagan Museum of Contemporary Art (Tmoca), “said The Art Newspaper.
In 2019, the institution will present a large-scale exhibition of pieces of its Western art collections that have been hidden from the public since Reza Pahlavi sah in 1979.
From around 3,000 collections, from impressions and cubism to pop art and minimal art, 400-500 works will be produced at the five thousand square meter exhibition hall.
The exhibition on Portrait, Still Life and Landscape on 21 February is scheduled to be held in Berlin last year by an exhibition devoted to priceless works of art by Reza Pahlavi, a late Iranian sah, whose full material was provided by Tmoca. The curator of the exhibition planned for the German capital, Dutch Mattijs Visset, will compile the material of the next year’s exhibition.
Preparing for the exhibition and restoring the museum’s storerooms, the art historian found the works he had long forgotten or disappeared. Only two Picasso works have been recorded in the museum so far, the collection has now expanded to twelve, “said Visser, who believes that more works will be available at the time of preparation.
Emperor Farah’s collection is one of the largest and most valuable collections of Western art in the world with artists such as Claude Monet, Max Ernst, Vassili Kandinsky, Pablo Picasso, Francis Bacon, Jasper Johns or Andy Warhol.
The new exhibition also presents the new compositions of the institution, including works by Günther Uecker, Bertrand Lavier and Tony Cragg, as well as works by local young artists.
