Acquired directly from the above sale by the present owner 

“Charles-Hossein Zenderoudi is the bearer of a precious gift: a fundamental intuition that drove him straight away in his art to speak of just and true things by their trace and to create an effect of detachment in the artist’s and in the public’s memory. What is the exact proportion of East and West in this major option and its spectacular virtue of enchantment? It matters little, it is the mystery of God’s talent and finger.”

Pierre Restany (1930 – 2003), French art critic and cultural philosopher
