Marwan exhibition at the Serralves Museum in Oporto


Umarmung II, 1969


The ‘Marwan: Early Works 1962-1972’ exhibition at Serralves Museum in Porto presents over 140 paintings and works on paper produced by the Syrian painter Marwan.

Born in Damascus in 1934, Marwan is internationally recognized as one of the great contemporary Arab artists. The works produced between 1962 and 1972 are an exemplary group of the formal and thematic originality of a body of work that draws on features from another time and place. A large number of works - especially those on paper - have rarely been exhibited outside Germany and are still in the artist’s possession.
