      Est: $80 - $120

      Amy Nimir (act. 1925-1949) Portrait 1932 Pen & ink Signed & dated lower right 25 x 20 cm OTHER NOTES: Amy Nimir (later Lady Smart) studied fine arts at the Slade in London and visited Paris and Rome. Her first exhibition dates from 1925, her painting already showing a deep "oriental influence," according to Azar, who comments on her painting Barques (Boats), seeing in it the achievement of the artist's maturity. " Barques" he wrote, "[infused] with the solidity of a grey light softly tinted with pale intimations, holds us in a tranquility born from submission to fate. Alas, we owe this resigned philosophy to a cruel loss that befell this artist, and which has kept her silent for a several years." In 1932, Amy Nimr married Englishman Walter Smart, who was then Oriental Secretary at the British Residency and a well-known figure in Cairo's salons.
