A key figure in Turkish modernism, Fahrelnissa Zeid was one of the first female students to study fine arts in Turkey. After marrying into the Jordanian royal family, this artist princess went on to travel the world, attending art school in Paris and exhibiting in London.

Through her long career Zeid explored many different styles and experimented with a range of techniques and materials. Trained in both Paris and Istanbul, Fahrelnissa Zeid was an important figure in the Turkish avant-garde Group in the early 1940s and the École de Paris (School of Paris) in the 1950s. uses cookies.
