SHAFIC ABBOUD + ABDALLAH BENANTEUR

1. Shafic Abboud (Lebanese, 1926-2004).
Historic masterpieces from European private collections.
‘Shafic Abboud is one of the foremost Arab Artists of the 20th century. His paintings are a manifesto for freedom, colour and light, as well as being a permanent bridge between the art of Europe and the Middle East. He was very attached to Lebanon, to its landscapes, its light and his own childhood memories. He was from a Lebanese Arab Modern culture, strongly influenced by the stories of his grandmother, the paintings of the travelling story-tellers and by the Byzantine icons. The writings of the Arab Nahda were to later have a significant impact on his intellectual education. He played in Lebanon, before 1976 and after 1993, a major role for Beirut’s cultural and artistic life. (…). His mature works are ‘transfigurative’, because of Abboud’s search for a synthesis between his fairy-tale like childhood world and his technical mastering of abstract Parisian painting. He transfigured images filtered from his memory into painting, such as his series of Destroyed Cafés of 1990. (…).’ (Claude Lemand, Paris 2011)

Claude Lemand held 15 solo shows of works from different periods and aspects of his Art, wrote analysis on his personality, works and influence, published his Monograph in 2006, curated his Retrospective in 2011 in Paris, at the Institut du Monde Arabe and published the Catalogue. In 2012, initiated his Retrospective in the Beirut Exhibition Center.

2. Abdallah Benanteur (Algerian, born 1931).
Paintings from 1982 to 1992.
‘Born in 1931 in Mostaganem (Algeria), Abdallah Benanteur was brought up in an Algerian family and cultural environment, specifically enthralled by writing and illuminated manuscripts, by mystic Muslim poetry, by Andalusian music and songs. Throughout his adolescence, he shared a passion for the poetic illuminations of Al-Hallaj, Ibn Arabi, Omar Khayyam and Saadi, as well as for Cézanne’s visual and constructive order, whose influence he discovered in books of reproductions. (…). In 1953, he settled down in Paris, which he transformed into his own capital of life and creativity. Visiting museums in France and Europe, he assimilated the masterpieces of the great masters, and he managed to create his own personal œuvre, producing lyrical landscapes infused with the light of his Mediterranean homeland and that of his adopted Brittany, landscapes that are sometimes abstract or dotted with silhouettes of people walking.’ (Claude Lemand, 2005)

Claude Lemand held 22 solo shows dedicated to Abdallah Benanteur, of works from different periods and aspects of his Art, wrote analysis on his personality and works and published his Monograph in 2 volumes.
