The Calligrapher's Garden

by Hassan Massoudy
£10.00   paperback  Saqi Books (2012)

The Calligrapher

"Even the white lilac has a shadow"
(Hungarian Proverb.)
Hassan Massoudy's elegant calligraphy depicts the four seasons of the garden. From the icy palettes of winter, to delicate spring growth; from the dazzling sunshine and blooms of summer through the fading hues of autumn, he captures in calligraphy what countless poets have wrought with words.
 
Massoudy draws his seasonal inspirations from writers, artists and luminaries such as Kahlil Gibran, Henri Matisse, and Lao Tseu, as well as from Hungarian, Spanish, Turkish and Japanese proverbs.
