Seif and Adham Wanly Egyptian Art Collection (Hussein Sobhy Museum)

Adham Wanly was a painter who introduced modern art to Egypt after studying at the Studio of the Italian Artist Otorino Becchi. After his mentor’s death, in 1934 he opened a private studio to teach painting without using models. He explored nature through every day events of his hometown which he subjected to his painting; namely the sea, fishermen’s boats among other things. He was a member of the teaching staff at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Alexandria. In 1942 he set up a Studio with his brother Saif and together they participated in more than 17 exhibitions, notably in the Biennale of Venice and in Sao-Paolo, Brazil. Today an entire floor of the Mahmoud Said Museum in Alexandria is dedicated to Adham and Seif Wanly masterpieces.
