Persian Frescoes to Be Shown.

By Edward Alden JEWELL

Seventeenth-century Persian frescoes, as "reconstructed" by Sarkis Katchadourian, constitute an exhibition at the Museum, of Modern Art, which will open today to members and tomorrow to the public. These paintings will be on view (in the fourth-floor galleries) until Nov. 19, after which they will begin a tour of the country, circulated by the American Institute for Persian Art and Archaeology, under whose auspices they were brought to America.
