HELP with researching artist Attiya Hussein

Create New Topic
Showing 1 - 6 of 6 Comments
I've just bought a painting and I want to find out about the artist and the context. I can't find anything through a Google search.

All I know: The artist is Attiya Hussein, and I believe he/she is Egyptian (maybe Cairo specifically). The painting is dated 1985, so fairly contemporary.

If you know anything about contemporary Egyptian art -- or anyone who knows -- please tell me and also spread the word. THANK YOU!

This is my painting:

The Rooster's Tale
I think she is Indian
