Pollock masterpiece loaned from Iran
 
 
 

TOKYO (AFP) - A masterpiece by US artist Jackson Pollock is being exhibited at a Tokyo museum in its first trip outside Iran in more than three decades.
The Tokyo National Museum of Modern Art is holding an exhibition of Pollock (1912-1956) including “Mural on Indian Red Ground” on loan from the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art, which has an estimated value of $250 million. “Mural on Indian Red Ground”, purchased by the wife of the pro-West shah 35 years ago, was proclaimed national property in the 1979 revolution when the royal family was overthrown.
