Sotheby’s is honored to be showcasing examples of Lebanon’s diverse artistic output, notably from both modern and contemporary masters. Although some of the artists moved away from Lebanon during their lifetime, many of these works capture a sense of belonging and attachment to their birth country, often with the use of colour and subject matter. The country’s unwavering commitment to its art scene is testified through the strength, boldness and originality of these works.
