The retrospective exhibition dedicated to Shafic Abboud, one of the foremost Lebanese painters of the second half of the 20th century, has met a large audience - 1650 visitors between 8 pm and midnight on May 13 - and is extended by two months until August 24.

Shafic Abboud’s paintings are a manifesto for freedom, colour, light and joy, as well as being a permanent bridge between the art scenes of France and Lebanon and that of Lebanon and the Middle East. The exhibition sheds light on Shafic Abboud’s paintings, comprising of 190 works of various sizes, dating from all his periods (1948-2003) and coming from many different provenances. Hopefully further exhibitions will present other aspects of the artist’s multifaceted creativity, such as his artist’s books, his prints and lithographs, his ceramics and terracottas, his carpets and tapestries, his sculpture designs…
