The first marble #sculpture to appear by Mahmoud #Mokhtar at auction, Al

The first marble #sculpture to appear by Mahmoud #Mokhtar at auction, Al Amira (The #Princess) is an exquisite and rare example of his depiction of the #Egyptian aristocracy of the 1920s. Her frontal pose and stylised visage and folds of the drapery result in one of the most elegant sculptures created by the father of modern Egyptian sculpture. On view in our #London galleries today, ahead of Thursday’s auction.

Shared by sothebys (Sotheby’s) and selected for Art.
