Western Art in Iran: Warhol, Pollock,Picasso...

Yahoo TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran has put on display for the first time what art experts say is the most important collection of modern Western art outside Europe and the United States.
Spanning the 1870s to the late 1980s and boasting works by artists including Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet, Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock, the "Modern Art Movement" exhibition contains some paintings not shown since Iran's 1979 Islamic revolution.

"This is the first time we have ever displayed the collection together," Alireza Samiazar, director of the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, told Reuters.
