“Imperfect Chronology” – modern and contemporary Arab art at the Whitechapel Gallery, London
Through early December, the gallery is hosting what looks like a fascinating show of pieces from the Barjeel Art Foundation collection, founded by Sultan Saood al-Qassemi.
Inji Efflatoun, “The Dinshaway Massacre,” c. 1950s
One of the artists featured is Syrian painter Marwan Kassab Bachi, who now lives and works in Germany. Here are a few of his earlier works:
“Munif Al-Razzaz,” 1965
“The Husband,” 1966
“Three Palestinian Boys (Fidayeen),” 1970
