The Wellesley Club UK has organized an exclusive guided tour of the Fahrelnissa Zeid Exhibition at the Tate Modern, Bankside. The tour will be conducted by Richard Thomas.
Trained in both Paris and Istanbul, Fahrelnissa Zeid was an important figure in the Turkish avant-garde d group in the early 1940s and the École de Paris (School of Paris) in the 1950s. Her vibrant abstract paintings are a synthesis of Islamic, Byzantine, Arab and Persian influences fused with European approaches to abstraction. Many of her abstract works are monumental and demand attention.
