Summary
Fahrelnissa Zeid (1901-91) was one of Turkey's most important artists, best known for her large-scale abstract paintings. Marrying influences from Islamic, Byzantine and Eastern art with the bold colour of the fauvists, the geometrical dissonance of the cubists and the precise lines of Mondrian, Zeid developed an abstract vocabulary that was a synthesis of East and West yet was uniquely her own. This new book traces her development from the first works she made in Turkey, through her engagement with the D-Group, her later experiments with abstraction and, finally, her return to figuration. It also examines the pivotal role she played in the cross-pollination of artistic ideas in the twentieth century through her involvement with key groups and movements in diverse regions and communities. Documentary photography from the period gives new insight into the historical and art historical events that formed the backdrop to her ever evolving style. Featuring over 100 reproductions of Zeid's bold and colourful paintings, from her earlier geometric, calligraphic style to the later, more expressive portraits, the catalogue showcases the depth and range of her work. Exhibition: Tate Modern, London, United Kingdom (07.06.2017-15.10.2017). / Deutsche Bank Kunsthalle, Berlin, Germany (20.10.2017-25.03.2018)
