Welcome to “Masters: Modern and Contemporary Art Auction” organized in collaboration with our partner ArtScoops.
In previous auctions we have focused on emerging up-and-coming artists both inside and outside of Syria. In this edition, we are shifting the focus to be modernist artworks created by Syria’s master artists.
Whilst there is an ongoing need to collectively support younger Syrian artists who have struggled to work amidst a decade of upheaval, we also strive to raise awareness of – and acknowledge – their predecessors – the pioneers and creative revolutionaries of days gone by. Some names in the auction will be familiar to many, such as the likes of Fateh Moudarres and Mahmoud Hammad, however, there are many which have little-to-no international recognition and continue to be overlooked by many auction houses and art collectors globally.
These figures are crucial to the art history of not only Syria, but of the region as a whole, playing an important role in our understanding of how many movements and media evolved locally and how art education progressed across the country.
Our auctions are intended to push Syrian art into the spotlight as well as to educate art collectors and art lovers on Syria’s artistic legacy. We are grateful, as always, to ArtScoops for being our partner. And we thank you, our supporters, for your ongoing faith in our work and in the artists. We hope you find your new art acquisition in this Auction.
