Ironically Balzac's The Unknown Masterpiece (Le Chef-d’œuvre inconnu) has itself remained "unknown" to many readers, probably because it was first published as an article in a newspaper in 1831, and later on it was only published along with several other stories in the compilation the Comédie humaine in 1846. Koorosh Angali has translated the book into Persian, using an English translation by Michael Neff, and a French text (as reference for accuracy). The Persian volume is currently under print at the Gooyandeh Publishing Co., and is expected to be distributed in the spring of 2016.
What is Modern Painting is a book written by Alfred H. Barr, the first director of the New York Museum of Modern Art. It is intended to instruct non-artist audience as to how to look at a modern painting and what to look for. By pairing and comparing traditional and modern paintings, he has guided the reader step by step through a fascinating journey in the mesmerizing world of Modern Painting. The Persian volume is currently under consideration by the Publishing Company, and is expected to be published and distributed during the summer of 2016.
