    Elmarsa Gallery is pleased to participate in the virtual fair Abu Dhabi Art 2020 through an unprecedented online experience featuring its booth with a group of leading modern Arab painters who have made a significant contribution to the development of the arts in the mid-twentieth century. The exhibition presents a selection of important abstract works, mostly oil paintings and a unique large-scale bronze sculpture, by a group of thirteen influential figures of modern art from North Africa and the Middle-East. From Beirut to Tehran and Algiers, artists in the wake of their artistic career travelled frequently to Europe, especially to France, to pursue their training at the heart of the art world. The emergence of diverse modern art movements in Western painting in the mid-twentieth century influenced the pioneers of Arab modern art, who came into their own around the 1950s and 1960s as they engaged in abstract art movements and developed new approaches of painting. Representing profound emotions and universal themes, the works on view at the booth provide insight into the work of these prominent Arab modernists who celebrated nature and spirituality.

    Exhibiting artists:

    Shafic Abboud (1926 - 2004), Nasser Assar (1928 – 2011), Abdallah Benanteur (1931- 2017), Mahjoub Ben Bella (1946-2020), Rachid Koraichi (b. 1947), Baya Mahieddine (1931-1998), Abdelkader Guermaz (1919-1996), Nja Mahdaoui (b. 1937), Gouider Triki (b. 1949), Khaled Ben Slimane (b. 1951), Charles Hussein Zenderoudi (b. 1937), George Albert Cyr (1880-1964), Mohamed Nabili (1952-2012).
