Hourani has been working for over a year on a book project, which is itself based on a novel about a painting titled Jamal Al Mahamel by Palestinian artist Suleiman Mansour. This artwork was sold to  the former Libyan president Muammar al Gaddafi in the 1970s. Through this project, Hourani seeks to figure out what happened to the painting and the circumstances of its disappearance after the 2011 political upheavals in Libya. He also raises the question of the perception of art both in Palestine and Libya. More on Khaled Hourani

01 Painting, Streets of Paris, by the artists of their time, Part 63 - With Footnotes

Fried Pal, (1893 - 1976)
Untitled, (Can Can Dancers)
Oil on canvas
30  1/4  x  24  1/4  inches
Private collection

The can-can  is a high-energy, physically demanding dance that became a popular music hall dance in the 1840s, continuing in popularity in French cabaret to this day. Originally danced by both sexes, it is now traditionally associated with a chorus line of female dancers. The main features of the dance are the vigorous manipulation of skirts and petticoats, along with high kicks, splits, and cartwheels. More on the can-can



Pál Fried (16 June 1893 in Hungary – 6 March 1976 in New York City) was a Hungarian artist. His oil paintings were usually of dancers, nudes, and portraits, and his subjects were almost always women, although he also painted Paris, seascapes, and cowboys and landscapes of the American West. He signed his paintings, as is usual in Hungarian, with his surname first as "Fried Pál". At times, this particular artist would make several, almost identical versions of the same oil painting, except he would use slightly different facial expressions and/or would try different colour schemes.


Fried immigrated to the United States in 1946 after World War II, and became a U.S. citizen in 1953. He lived in Los Angeles and New York City. More on Pál Fried

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

Effat Mousa Nagy was born in the Mediterranean port of Alexandria in 1905. She was fascinated by culture, she was trained in music and mathematics. She was taught art by a private tutor and her artistic brother Mohamed Nagy. Her formal training was at the Arts Academy in Rome in 1947. She worked in Egypt under André Lhote and they used Egyptian archaeology as subject matter.

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

01 Photograph, The amorous game, Part 54 - With Footnotes

David Drebin
Kissing Legs, 2018
Digital C-Print
30 × 45 in, 76.2 × 114.3 cm
Private collection

Love stories and landscapes are at the foundation of David Drebin's panoramas, portraits, and neon sculptures. His monograph Love and Other Stories (2007) features solitary women in urban tableaux—high-rise apartments buildings and terraces, freeway overpasses and hotel rooms. Dressed alternately in bikinis, evening gowns, and negligees, the women appear to be in various stages of a love affair. They pout while lying on couches and ascend grand staircases; their legs emerge from doorways and car doors, their concealed upper bodies assumedly engaged in passionate embraces. Drebin's cityscapes present sweeping views of famous locales such as Jerusalem, Paris, and New York and incorporate both built and natural features. In San Francisco Dusk (2010), an illuminated grid of buildings reaches toward the misty blue horizon of the Pacific Ocean. More on David Drebin

David Drebin is an American artist who works in photographs, lightboxes, neon light Installations, sculptures and etchings on glass.

After graduating from Parsons School of Design in New York City in 1996, Drebin started creating images of movie stars, sports personalities and entertainers. He later received commissions for advertising campaigns worldwide.

In 2005, Drebin had his first solo exhibition at Camera Work in Berlin. In 20017, he published his first comprehensive illustrated book entitled Love and Other Stories.


Drebin's photographs frequently incude femme fatales in cities such as Hong Kong, New York, and Paris.  More on David Drebin

01 Painting, Streets of Paris, by the artists of their time, Part 60 - With Footnotes

Christopher James
Chez Camille, Paris
Oil on Wood
14.2 W x 18.1 H x 0.2 in

Located along the route up from Place des Abbesses to Montmartre, next to the Bateau-Lavoir building where Picasso once had a workshop, Chez Camille has lost none of its charm. The tiny terrace and sprinkling of tables in this place perched high above the hubbub of the city are always keenly sought after. More on Chez Camille

"I was attracted to the look and character of this Parisian restaurant, which is often used by artists and musicians. I found painting the sidewalk and road interesting as well, as it was an strong contrast to the red of the restaurant..." Christopher James

Christopher James was born in County Durham, England. James has been a serious painter for over 25 years. He studied fine art at the University of Northumbria, though is mostly self taught. He has exhibited in London, Kent and Edinburgh and his paintings have attracted collectors from the UK and internationally. He dreamt of being an artist from the age of 12 and discovering biblical images by Rembrandt in a family bible had sparked an early fascination with dramatic light and form. His compositions of atmospheric street scenes, landscapes and figure studies are informed by a combination of oil sketches, photography and memory. Ultimately striving to create qualities of light, which reflect deeper memories, emotions and imagination. At the same time capturing sacred and timeless qualities of people, architecture and nature. ​ Many artists from early Renaissance to the present day have been an influence on his progress. Especially Andrea Del Sarto, Van Gogh, Sargent, Delacroix, Rembrandt, Artemisia Gentileschi, Sickert, Joan Eardley, Gwen John, Marino Marini, Andrew Gifford, Peter Brown and many more. More on Christopher James

01 Painting, MIDDLE EASTERN ART, With Footnotes - 37

Hassan Sharif, (1951-2016) , EMIRIAN
GARDEN #1, c. 2007
Oil on canvas 
100 by 70cm.; 39 3/8 by 27 1/2 in.
Private collection

Hassan Sharif (1951-2016) made a vital contribution to conceptual art and experimental practice in the Middle East through 40 years of performance, installation, drawing, painting and assemblage. Prior to leaving the UAE to study in London in 1979, Sharif gained attention for his cartoons published in the U­AE press - ironic, outspoken critiques of the rapid industrialisation of the Emirates and political deadlock of 1970s Arab Nationalism. As an artist, he rejected calligraphic abstraction, which was becoming the dominant discourse in the Middle East at that time, and pursued instead a pointedly contemporary vocabulary, drawing on the non-elitism and intermedia of Fluxus and the potential in British Constructionism's systemic processes of making.

Sharif graduated from The Byam Shaw School of Art in 1984 and returned to the UAE shortly after. He set about staging interventions and the first exhibitions of contemporary art in Sharjah, as well as translating art historical texts and manifestos into Arabic so as to provoke a local audience to engage with - or at least reject - contemporary art discourse. 

In addition to his own practice, he also encouraged and supported several generations of artists in the Emirates. Sharif was a founding member of the Emirates Fine Arts Society and the Art Atelier in the Youth Theatre and Arts in Dubai. In 2007, he was one of the four artists to establish The Flying House, a Dubai institution for promoting contemporary Emirati artists. More on Hassan Sharif

HERMAN PEKEL, (born 1956) 
Paris Evening 
Oil on board 
121 x 60cm 
Private collection

“The tactile quality of impasto oil paint, its smell, the feel, had me addicted when only twelve years old. Forty years later, the addiction has grown into an obsession. The subject for me, personally is less consequential than the simple matter of applying paint to canvas. As long as the shapes within the picture plane harmonise with one another the addiction can continue.” – Herman Pekel.

Herman Pekel was born in Melbourne in 1956 of Dutch parents. Herman’s first solo art exhibition was held in Melbourne at the age of 17 and was a sell-out success. Herman’s tonal works in oil and watercolour range from city to landscapes, to café and bar interiors, to dynamic industrial scenery. They all demonstrate the best of contemporary impressionism. Herman is a multi-awarded painter: a three-time winner of the coveted Camberwell Gold Medal Art Prize and a winner of the prestigious Alice Bale Award in 1989 and 1993. Herman is a longstanding member of the Twenty Melbourne Painters Society. Herman is a painter with immense talent and insight, and continues to actively exhibit across Australia and internationally.

01 Painting, Streets of Paris, by the artists of their time, Part 66 - With Footnotes

Jean Dufy, (1888 - 1964)
Montmartre 
Watercolor on paper
51 x 65 cm
Private collection

The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The basilica is located at the summit of the butte Montmartre, the highest point in the city. Sacré-Cœur is a double monument, political and cultural, both a national penance for the defeat of France in the 1871 Franco-Prussian War and the socialist Paris Commune of 1871 crowning its most rebellious neighborhood, and an embodiment of conservative moral order

The Sacré-Cœur Basilica was designed by Paul Abadie. Construction began in 1875 and was finished in 1914. It was consecrated after the end of World War I in 1919. More on the Basilica

Jean Dufy (b Le Havre, France, 1888; d La Boissière, 1964) French Painter. Following his service in the military, from 1910-1912, Jean Dufy relocated to Paris. Inspired by the work of Braque and Picasso, Dufy created watercolors that expressed a heightened understanding of color and light. In the mid-1920s, Jean Dufy became captivated by the music of the time, such as Darius Millaud and Francis Poulenc, and incorporated this interest into his artwork. While depicting orchestral and musical subjects, Dufy later became enchanted by the coast of Northern France and began to create majestic and effecting landscapes. Throughout the 1950s Dufy explored Western Europe and North America, but inevitably returned to his watercolors and oils of Paris. Just two months after the death of his wife, Ismérie, Jean Dufy died in 1964 in La BoissiereMore Jean Dufy

01 Painting, The amorous game, Part 52 - With Footnotes

Norman Alfred William Lindsay, 1879-1969
Woman Enchanting Man (circa 1932) 
Watercolour on paper
38.5 x 32.5 cm
Private collection

Norman Alfred William Lindsay (22 February 1879 – 21 November 1969) was an Australian artist, etcher, sculptor, writer, editorial cartoonist, scale modeller, and an accomplished amateur boxer.

In 1895, Lindsay moved to Melbourne to work on a local magazine with his older brother Lionel. In 1901, he and Lionel, his older brother, joined the staff of the Sydney Bulletin, a weekly newspaper, magazine and review. His association there would last fifty years.

Lindsay travelled to Europe in 1909. In Naples he began 100 pen-and-ink illustrations for Petronius' Satyricon. Visits to the then South Kensington Museum where he made sketches of model ships in the Museum's collection stimulated a lifelong interest in ship models. The Lindsays returned to Australia in 1911.

Lindsay wrote the children's classic The Magic Pudding which was published in 1918. Many of his novels have a frankness and vitality that matches his art. In 1938, Lindsay published Age of Consent.

Cartoons, by Lindsay, were used both for recruitment and to promote conscription during World War I.
Lindsay also worked as an editorial cartoonist, notable for often illustrating the racist and right-wing political leanings that dominated The Bulletin at that time.

Lindsay influenced numerous artists, notably the illustrators Roy Krenkel and Frank Frazetta; he was also good friends with Ernest Moffitt. More on Norman Alfred William Lindsay

01 Painting, MIDDLE EASTERN ART, With Footnotes - 36

Safwan Dahoul, B. 1961, SYRIAN
UNTITLED 
Oil and gold leaf on wood 
25 by 20cm.; 9 7/8 by 7 7/8 in.
Private collection

Safwan Dahoul, born in 1961 in Hama, Syria, Dahoul was initially trained by leading modernists at the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Damascus before travelling to Belgium, where he earned a doctorate from the Higher Institute of Plastic Arts in Mons. Upon returning to Syria, he began teaching at the Faculty of Fine Arts and was a prominent member of the Damascus art scene. In the span of a decade, Dahoul nurtured a new generation of artists as an active mentor whose evolving aesthetic often ignited new directions in painting. Given the trajectory and status of his painting style, Dahoul’s career is regarded as a crucial link between modern and contemporary Arab art.

Since the late 1980s, Dahoul’s ongoing Dream series has explored the physical and psychological effects of alienation, solitude, and longing that punctuate the human experience at various stages in life. Partly autobiographical, this seminal body of work uses the formal properties of painting to recreate the subconscious sense of enclosure that surfaces during times of crisis. The artist’s recurring female protagonist facilitates this visceral experience through her contorted body, often-vacant eyes, and minimised yet monumental physicality. Depicted in the confinement of ambiguous settings, her presence is defined by the placement of various objects that seem to deepen the state of her disaffection, as even the familiar becomes a trigger of distress. More on Safwan Dahoul
