In Paintings: Exploring the Colors of Rural Egypt


There is little more ubiquitous in Arab art than Egyptian rural communities; colorful and dynamic, these locales are hubs of energy and hard work, their niche tradition the subject of inspiration for many artists over the centuries.

From French painters enamored with Egyptian simplicity to Egyptian artists looking to showcase a unique, often overlooked facet of their communities: there is truly nothing quite as beautiful as the image of the Egyptian reef (rural towns).

Here is a small, modest gallery of some modern art depicting the ins and outs of rural Egypt.
