Untitled 1943-1949

2014

Between 1943 and 1949 1943, Suha Traboulsi, a prominent yet highly controversial Arab artist, painted 21 equally sized canvasses. Each consisted of four carefully considered elements: a color geometric abstraction in the middle
of each canvas;  its frame (from ornate to simple, wood to metal and gold Victorian or Rococo-type frames to plain minimalist Plexiglas box frame); the frame’s shadow (from faint to sharply delineated); a neutral ground.
