Thumbnails sometimes look like stars. They light up our nights and our shadows sketching a horizon to dream of. Tiny in appearance, they spread their light in countless and often unknown universes. And when you hear their message, it is not certain that the star still exists. It is then up to us to bring his hope to life and perpetuate his imagination.

An artist who wanted to bring peace to the world
It was during a meeting to discuss Nowruz, the Persian New Year, that he welcomed us in his bright studio located in a courtyard in the 19th arrondissement. In the middle of the frames and the canvases, we discover a warm, discreet, passionate man, whose works seem to reflect his soul and his conviction that artists should bring peace to the world. One of his miniatures, composed of gold and black watercolor on somewhat parchment paper, was titled Peaceful Coexistence: "Each of the people you see in this miniature does what they want to do, without bothering the other. The dervish says his prayer, the lover makes love, the poet reads his poem, and animals also live in peace ... "
Born in 1939, in Racht, Iran, Abbas Moayeri was a student of famous masters of miniature and Persian painting such as Esmaïl Ashtiani, Mohammad Ali Zavier or Hossein Behzâd, of which he will be at the end of the 1960s the successor to the prestigious post of professor at the School of Fine Arts in Tehran. Curious to discover the world, he finally settled in Paris at the end of the 1970s, happy to find himself in a city-world: “I learned much more about the art of Persian miniature in France than Iran. For that, I gave up my job as a professor of Fine Arts in Tehran and started my life in Paris ".

Photographer Frank Horvat, great traveler, fashion and street observer, author of striking portraits of women, died at the age of 92, we learned on Wednesday from the Lelong gallery in Paris.
An ambassador of the art of Persian miniature.
He loved to stroll through the ruins of the mythical city of Persepolis to enrich the lines in his sketchbook and make his works live in a thousand-year-old spirit. In Paris, he remained deeply attached to his Persian culture, one of the cradles of world civilization. Beyond his own works and numerous awards (the Silver Medal of the Academic Society of Arts-Sciences-Letters of the French Academy in 1985, the Gold Medal for French Merit and Devotion in France in 2000, the Diploma honor of the Iranica Encyclopedia in 2009), he has never ceased to promote and share the art of Persian miniature through courses and workshops.
With his death, one can easily imagine Abbas Moayeri transforming himself into a character of his own miniatures: a floating soul no longer having his feet on the ground to fly to his paradise.
