Nejad Devrim (Turkish, 1923-95) Shops on a canal in winter
oil on cardboard 35 x 47.2 cm.
Provenance: UK private collection; acquired directly from the artist's sister Fahrelnissa Zeid in the mid 1970s.
The present lot is consistent with works produced by Nejad Devrim from the late 1930s to 40s. The scene depicts shops with a canal running underneath and is probably based on Venice, which Devrim visited in 1947.
