Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Private Turkish collection; Acquired from the artist's estate in approximately 2005.

    In 1933 Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu was among the founding members of the new artistic group known as the D Group. Their aim was to set themselves apart from the elder generation of Turkish artists to produce works that advanced the development of contemporary Turkish art by employing new techniques and depicting different subjects such as the Anatolian region.

    Their rejection of the Impressionistic styles of the Istanbul School and the tenents to which artists like Calli and Hamdi Bey ascribed included the application of Cubism and Expressionism. They replaced the soft shimmering Impressionist depictions of the Bosphorus with hard, geometric lines and abstract curves, considered radical in the extreme by the establishment.
