Catalogue Note

The brothers Seif and Adham Wanly are two of the most distinguished Egyptian modern masters.

For their time and place, their oeuvre is evidence enough to show how remarkably advanced they were in their artistic development, anticipating certain trends within the canon of contemporary art and even leading the way for the future generation of artists.

The two brothers worked closely together and their work and styles appear to be very similar. On further inspection, there are distinct differences. Adham, a sensualist, was rooted in the ambience he found in the world around him, with a passion for music and dance, whereas Seif had a more abstract approach, he was far more involved in impressionism and post-expressionism, as represented here in the Degas-esque female figures.
