A radical departure from Professor Albert Boime's well-known social art history, "The Birth of Abstract Romanticism" examines the paintings of Kamran Khavarani. In this beautiful volume, Boime delves into the beauty, passion and intensity of Khavarani's work, expressed in layered themes of landscapes, cosmologies, botanical micro worlds, and ecstatic visions. Lavished with over 100 images, this book offers a unique view of both an artist and a celebrated art historian.
