Warhol, Pollock, Rothko on rare display in Tehran

Some of the world’s most expensive and rarely seen modern art, including works by the Americans Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol, went on display Saturday in a major exhibition in Iran. Among the 42 Western works featured in the museum’s three-month exhibition is Pollock’s “Mural on Indian Red Ground”, completed in 1950 and considered one of his best drip paintings. Also featured is Warhol’s “Suicide”, a 1963 acrylic of a man leaping to his death from a building.
