Footnotes

  • Along with artists such as Saliba Douaihy, Farroukh is regarded as one of the pioneers of modern Lebanese painting, and trained initially in Lebanon itself, despite later trips to Rome and Paris. These painters were especially concerned to document their country's landscape and people. See Wijdan Ali, Modern Islamic Art: Development and Continuity, Gainesville FL 1997, pp. 39ff.
