San’ati Museum in Tehran Home to 6,000 Art Pieces

Ali-Akbar San’ati Museum, a gallery of the Iranian maestro’s artworks, is located in a historic building in central Tehran belonging to the Qajar era.

San’ati Museum’s building has two floors; the first composed of a large hall with door opening to the south-eastern section of the museum. It is located near the Imam Khomeini Square, with two other doors: one in the building’s south-western section; and the other opening to Ferdowsi Street.

The opening doors as well as the windows of the building are decorated with horseshoes and the shafts are covered with special stucco.

Meanwhile, a number of stone plinths with a 1.5m height each have been erected around the building. The museum’s facet is covered and decorated with seven-coloured bricks.

The Museum is home to at least 6,000 pieces of paintings and stone, bronze and plaster sculptures by San’ati (born in 1916).
