Modern and Contemporary Middle Eastern Art including On The Banks of the Nile / Inji Efflatoun (Egypt, 1924-1984) Fellahin
Property from a private collection, Cairo
"From the second half of the 1960s, Efflatoun's work transitioned to more pastoral subject matter, depicting the daily lives of women among fields of orange trees, for example. As she left the wretched and gloomy confines of prison behind and experienced freedom anew, Efflatoun's palette changed. She started using less murky colours, and left open spaces in her paintings."
