Landscapes [Slide show]

Sumbat was a lover of nature, particularly the scenes around his hometown of Isfahan. The landscape there is mountainous and dry, full of earthy colors under a blue sky. The many historical sites around Isfahan and other Iranian cities also provided ample inspiration for him. As E. Nazari-Noori has said "He is intimate with the Iranian soil and sun. He knows the secret of seasons. He is a narrator of Iranian history."

Sumbat also painted landscapes in Armenia, Saudi Arabia, Europe and the United States. However, he never liked forests. They were "too green" for him. He liked open landscapes with warm, earthy colors.
