A Migrant Painter Of Modern Times

March 7, 2019 – June 9, 2019

SALT Galata, Bankalar Caddesi 11, Karaköy, Istanbul

Celebrated in her time but often forgotten in the modern era, the portrait painter Mihri was one of the first renowned female artists of Ottoman times. Though she spent most of her life abroad, her portrait subjects include important Turkish figures like Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. She was a vehement defender of the women’s right to receive official art training in the Ottoman Empire and helped to found the Academy of Fine Arts for Women in Istanbul in 1914.

This exhibition combines Mihri’s work with archival documents, along with contemporaneous magazine and newspaper clippings.
