Louvre-Lens museum displays Iran-Iraq war photos

Tehran, July 16, IRNA – The Louvre-Lens art museum is showcasing a collection of photographs of the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war in an exhibition on the negative aspects of war.
Titled ˈWarˈs Catastropheˈ, the exhibition displays war images between 1800 to 2014, said artist Gohar Dashti.

Dashti is displaying two of her photos titled ˈModern Life and Warˈ which highlight the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war, Iran Daily wrote Wednesday.

ˈThe photos of the eight-year imposed war are not normally shown in foreign exhibits. Thus, this is an opportunity to display such photos at such exhibition,ˈ she said.

Works by Pablo Picasso, Francis Goya, Henry Moore and Marcel Gromaire are on show in the exhibit.

The Louvre-Lens is an art museum located in Lens, Pas-de-Calais, northern France, approximately 200 kilometers north of Paris. It displays objects from the collections of the Musée du Louvre that are lent to the gallery on a medium or long-term basis.
