In celebration of the launch of our Modern Masters Collection, we explore how Modern Arab art evolved from the colonial era into the post-colonial world, and further into the present day. Arab art has a rich and diverse history, despite its being relatively under-appreciated on the global scene. Much like its global counterparts, Arab art has reflected the cultural, political, and social changes of the Arab World over the course of centuries.
Despite the French capital's lustrous reputation for being a hub for romantics, Paris is not just made for lovers. Paris is renowned for its art, fashion, and abundance of tourist attractions.

So, if you’re an aesthete and have an appreciation for oriental art in particular, then get ready for a journey into the Arab world without stepping outside the capital!
