Women Artists in Arab Countries

Nuha Tabbara Hammoud

Abstract


The beginning of the twentieth century witnessed in the Arab World a limited number of artists most of whom were men; but the period between the fifties and eighties marked the birth of many women artists, especially in Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq and other countries - some of them with important affiliations, others with none - but they all had one thing in common: self-assertion and the struggle for more social and economic independence, after a long period of imposed absence.
