Her dynamic move from figuration to abstraction will be examined through works such as “Fight against Abstraction” (1947) and “Resolved Problems” (1948). Several works from her ever first solo exhibitions, held in her own apartment in Istanbul during the mid-1940s, will also go on display.
Zeid’s extraordinary life saw her studying art in both Istanbul and Paris. She went on to exhibit works across Europe, the USA and the Middle East. During the last twenty years of her career, Fahrelnissa Zeid returned to figurative paintings – the exhibition will culminate with several of her portraits.
