Fahrelnissa Zeid

 


Fahrelnissa Zeid (1901-1991) was one of the most influential female Turkish artists, best known for her large-scale abstract paintings. Trained in both Paris and Istanbul, her abstract vocabulary has been described as a synthesis of Islamic, Byzantine, Arab and Persian influences combined with stylistic elements that were developed in Europe during the post-war period.

The exhibition will examine the evolution of Zeid's figurative and abstract work, the themes she pursued and the methods and materials she experimented with during her career. It will also highlight the tension in the works and the complex patterns and influences that have dominated Zeid's practice: dynamism, the desire to represent motion through painting and her obsession with geometrical details.
