Rug Repair Painting by Great Iranian Artist "Nami Petgar"

Famous Iranian painter Nami Petgar who passed away in 2008 in Iran had many paintings among which this "Rug Repair" painting was a good one and my favorite. He was born in 1945 in Tehran. I am including a photo of Master Petgar here.

I received a phone call from someone mentioning that this work was not done by master Nami Petgar and then Maedeh, one of the students of master Nami contacted me a couple of times. This is the new finding that this painting was originally done by master Jafar Petgar. It was later copied by many other painters and artists. This copy which is shown here is done by Dadashi. Thank you Maedeh for taking time to investigate and clarify this.
