Dear Friends and Colleagues

It is with profound sadness that we share the sad news of the loss of a previous grantee Dr Abdullah Ghouchani, on Thursday, 6 August 2020, in Tehran. He is survived by his beloved wife, who was with him in Tehran, and his two daughters, Golnaz and Behnaz, both in the US.

Dr Abdullah Ghouchani was a previous grantee of The Barakat Trust  and we are proud to have supported him with his academic endeavours. In 1993, we provided a grant for Dr Abdullah Ghouchani to research inscribed Persian lusterware and tiles in the British and Ashmolean Museums as a visiting scholar, and in 1997 as a visiting scholar from Tehran to Los Angeles County Museum.

The Barakat Trust and staff send their deepest condolences to the family of Dr Abdullah Ghouchani. Your contributions to the world of Islamic Art will be sadly missed.
