Provenance: Hagop Kevorkian (1872-1962) was an archaeologist, collector and connoisseur of Middle Eastern art. He excavated at Sultanabad and Rayy in Iran and founded the Kevorkian Foundation in 1951. At his death the Kevorkian Collection was arguably the last comprehensive collection of first class paintings and works of art to come onto the market.
