The Tehran Mu­se­um of Con­tem­pora­ry Art bo­asts a collec­tion of so­me 1,500 works purcha­sed by the last Ira­ni­an Shah’s wi­fe.

The works we­re ba­nis­hed from pu­b­lic view by the Aya­tol­lah Khomei­ni for being de­ca­dent and un-Is­la­mic, and re­pla­ced with car­pets and cal­li­gra­phy.

The ma­jo­ri­ty of the works are still hi­d­den in the mu­se­um’s vaults, in­clu­ding 20 nu­des by Pi­cas­so, Re­noir and others.
