  On December 4 at Matenadaran was solemnly opened the exhibition of works of Iranian-Armenian artists - a photographer Antoin Khan Sevruguin (1851-1933) and his son, a painter Andre (Darvish) Sevrugian (1896-1997).
A year ago, in 2014, the Matenadaran signed an agreement with a German citizen Emmanuel Sevrugian, according to which he donated to the Matenadaran the collections of more than a hundred of valuable works of those two worldwide artists.
  By highlighting the importance of this exhibition the Director of Matenadaran Hrachya Tamrazyan in his speech reflected on the work of Andre Sevrugian by mentioning, “We’re talking about the millennial contacts of Armenian and Persian arts that reach to the mythological substrata and have the genealogical same roots. These interactions are also noticeable in the Middle Ages, especially in miniature painting. The latest eductions of interpenetration are Andre Sevrugian’s paintings where mythological-epic substrata are in the endless movement.” Speaking about the works of Antoin Khan Sevruguin (courtier first photographer of 1880s) Hrachya Tamrazyan said, “Antoin Sevruguin’s photos of high art are on the border of art and reality, they perpetuate the instants of existence, which are vital condensation of the moment and image.”
  At the opening ceremony the Matenadaran’s Director rewarded the Sevrugians’ inheritor Emmanuel Sevrugian with “St. Mesrop Mashtots” Memory Medal.
At the end of the ceremony took place a seminar devoted to the Sevrugians’ work activities.
  Before this exhibition’s solemn opening, on October 15 First Vice President of Iran Eshaq Jahangiri was acquainted with the exhibition of Sevrugians’ works.
