41 reviews

Mehmed Milih Devrim Nejad or Nejad Melih Devrim, Turkish, 1923 to 1995, oil painting on canvas depicting an abstract composition, 1976. Signed and dated lower right.View works. Nejad Devrim is one of the prominent Turkish artists who spent a significant period of his career in Paris. He is a painter who flourished in the libertarian atmosphere of Paris where artistic practice was fuelled by an atmosphere open to criticism. His aim was different than the previous generation of Turkish intellectuals who came to Paris for a Western education only to replicate it in Turkey. Devrim was part of a generation who constituted the first modernists of Turkey. His works were contemporaneous to modernist artists of his period and looked to actively participate in the European art scene. He abandoned the figurative compositions that he commenced in Istanbul and produced works that would later be identified as the masterpieces of Turkish abstract art. One of a kind artwork.
