Some of the world's most expensive and rarely seen modern art, including works by the Americans Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol, went on display Saturday in a major exhibition.Among the 42 Western works featured in the museum's three-month exhibition is Pollock's "Mural on Indian Red Ground," completed in 1950 and considered one of his best drip paintings.The American artist Mark Rothko's "Sienna Orange and Black on Dark Brown" oil-on-canvas work and Irish-born British painter Francis Bacon's "Reclining Man with Sculpture" are also on show.They are part of a joint exhibition featuring 130 works by famed Iranian visual artist, writer and translator Farideh Lashai, who died in 2013 .The Tehran museum did not hold a major exhibition of foreign art until 1999, a decade after Khomeini's death.
