Fahrelnissa Zeid. Painter of Inner Worlds provides a revisionist and definitive account of the Turkish modernist extraordinary life, and the constant innovation and reinvention that characterized her cosmopolitan career until her final decades working and teaching in Jordan. It foregrounds the importance of her extensive knowledge of European culture and her shifting mental state on her artistic vision, and challenges orientalist interpretations of her art. In doing so, it redefines Fahrelnissa Zeid for the contemporary reader as one of the most important modernists of the twentieth century. This book is based on unprecedented access to her private papers and personal archive.
