AlBahie is pleased to announce the second edition of AlBahie’s Modern and Contemporary Art Auction that will include an Important Collection of Iraqi Modern Art.
This private collection includes works by artists that came to define the 20th century modern art scene in Iraq – Faiq Hassan, Dr Alaa Bashir, Ali Al Jabiri, Mohammed Ghani Hikmat, Ismael Fattah, amongst other notable artists, including rare works by female artists from this generation – Suad al Attar, Betool al Fekaiki and Widad Al Orfali.
Complimenting this private collection of Iraqi Modern Art are significant works from emerging and established artists from the Middle East and North Africa. Highlights include a life-size Umm Kalthoum by Ibrahim El Dessouki, a monumental-size work by Hamza Bounoua, a vibrant butterfly and guitar composition by the always-popular Baya Mahieddine, and a signature 1974 landscape by Nassir Chaura.
All lots are currently on view at AlBahie during the pre-auction exhibition, free and open to the public to enjoy, study and appreciate.
