An exhibition of Persian calligraphies by two Iranian women artists Mitra Osanloo and her daughter Mehrafarin Akbari was held in Budapest, Hungary, last week.

Organized by the Iranian Embassy in Budapest and the Hungarian House of Nations, the five-day exhibit was welcomed by Hungarians, IRNA reported. Further, Persian calligraphy workshops were held at the House of Nations where enthusiasts learned about the basic elements of Persian calligraphy and its evolution up to the present time.

Earlier, the mother-daughter duo had displayed a collection of their works at Iran’s pavilion in the 16th Vienna Book Fair (November 9-13), which attracted several visitors including Heinz Fischer, the former president of Austria, IBNA reported.

Ossanlou said, the collection aims “to promote Iranian art and culture through a series of works created by a mother and her daughter,” and reflects the views and skills of the contemporary Iranian women artists.

The two were among the first Iranian women artists who participated at the Vienna Book Fair and their works were appreciated by Austrian art enthusiasts.
