Two of Alfred Basbous masterpieces received excellent reviews from art enthusiasts including art galleries at Art Dubai 2016 which runs until March 19th at Madinat Jumeirah.
The masterpieces titled “Femme Assise” or Seated Women and Standing Women are the highlights of the two-person show at ArtSpace Gallery under Art Dubai Moden. Alfred Basbous collection is exhibiting for the first time.
The curator, Fadi Alfred Basbous stated: “We are pleased to be in Art Dubai, such a respectful place for displaying high quality art work. Everyone is so professional here, from the team to the curators and the organization. It is such a good place to contemplate and celebrate our highly acclaimed artist. Art Dubai is one of our favorite fairs that we participate in among the 17 fairs to include Alfred Basbous around the word. Dubai is becoming an international hub where we can meet with international collectors and art critics. It is such a great platform for the art world.”
The works of Alfred Basbous glorify women in all stages of life: single or coupled, from birth to motherhood. He sculpted voluptuous and feminine forms in stone, bronze and marble. In a pure and modern style, his sculptures capture the grace of the female figure.
Now on its third year, Art Dubai Modern is the only curated programme of its kind in the world featuring works by masters from the Middle East, South Asia and Africa. The works presented in solo and two-person shows have rarely been seen before, with drawings, paintings and sculpture that are from the vibrant modern period of the 1940s – 1980s with an emphasis on minimal abstraction.
