Obituary : Monir Farmanfarmaian, the artist who opened the world's eyes to Iran

Obituary : Monir Farmanfarmaian, the artist who opened the world's eyes to Iran (bbc)

Monir Shahroudy, as she was born, was raised in the northern Iranian city of Qazvin among peach, almond and walnut trees. One of her earliest memories was of being chased through the bazaar by a camel she had unwisely decided to chide.

When she was seven, the family moved to Tehran, where her father had been elected to parliament, and young Monir got her first glimpse of the capital modernising under the Shah, Reza Shah Pahlavi.
