27 Oct-25 Nov 2009. This exhibition is dedicated to the half Egyptian, half French artist Katherine Bakhoum, whose Oriental-style paintings are made up of tender strokes and subtle pastel tones, but transmit strong and powerful messages.
Bakhoum was born in Cairo in 1949 and studied at L'Atelier Met de Penninghen and l'Ecole Estienne in Paris. Her works were displayed for the first time in Paris in 1984. Since 1999 the artist has displayed her works twice a year: once in Paris and once at Safar Khan in Cairo.
