‘Art on Board’, a selection of seminal works by Willy Aractingi 

Artscoops is delighted to announce a show of works by Willy Aractingi, the renowned Lebanese artist who passed away twenty years ago.

Titled ‘Art on Board’, the show will run at Artscoops space, Beirut from 27 June to 14 July, 2023.

The show features 16 seminal paintings depicting the fables of the French poet Jean de La Fontaine, Aractingi’s biggest and best-known oeuvre. The series was completed in 1989 while Aractingi was living in France.

These paintings were also selected by that country’s national carrier, Air France and featured on the front cover of the airline’s in-flight menus, with La Fontaine’s accompanying words reproduced on the back. 

‘Art on Board’ will also include an online auction for two paintings by Aractingi, which will be held over July 3 - 4, 2023.
