Forough Farrokhzad- For Sale $375 + Shipping 22X28 Acrylic On Canvas

Forough was born into the harsh repressive regime of the Muslim World. Growing up in Iran she was, as all women were, forced to repress her own sexuality and it was her bravery which led her to write some scathing indictments of the religious chauvinism in the form of intense poetry. She was a woman with a giant heart and while making a movie about Iranian children affected by leprosy she adopted one of them into the home she and her mother shared in Tehran. Her untimely death at 32 was a great tragedy for the Muslim world, considering how few women were brave enough to speak up about the deep pain felt at having their beauty hid away like a possession of the jealous.
