Effat Nagy (5 April 1905 – 4 October 1994) was an Egyptian artist who has a museum in Cairo devoted to her and her husband's works. The museum is called Museum of Saad El-Khadem and Effat Nagy
She married Saad Al-Khadem in 1945. He was also an artist and a researcher. Her husband's research inspired her art.
In 1964 she exhibited her work at the High Dam Exhibition. This was a result of work that she had been commissioned to do the previous year. She was asked to record the archaeology that would be lost as it was submerged under the waters of the Aswan Dam as it was constructed. She was one of 64 artists chosen to do this work.
In 1968 the Mohamed Nagy Museum was founded and Nagy made a donation of forty of her brother's paintings to help create a collection of her brother's work.
Nagy died in 1994 although another source says 1997. More on Effat Nagy
