Dia Azzawi (Iraq, born 1939) Hommage to Baghdad textile executed in 1983, signed "Azzawi" lower right, labelled "John French Fine Rugs and Wall-hangings" (verso), accompanied by a hand signed label from the Artist 150 x 300cm (59 1/16 x 118 1/8in). Fußnoten Provenance: Property from a private collection, London Produced by John French in 1983 for a Riyadh Hotel project "In the introduction of the exhibition catalogue of a show I had in Washington D.C. that talked about the use of calligraphy in my works, the curator wrote that he could not see Arabic calligraphy in my works but rather a series of 'signs'. That statement gave me more confidence in what I was doing. By trying to produce an art that is accessible to everyone I was not only attempting to bridge the contemporary and the ancient, but also to bridge Western and Eastern art" - Dia Azzawi
