May 2, 2017

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

The Turkish abstract painter Nejad Melih Devrim was an important member of the postwar Parisian avant-garde, whose work continues to be highly sought after today. Hailing from a family of renowned intellectuals, authors and poets, he was the son of writer Izzet Melih Devrim and painter Fahrelnissa Zeid. These influences are evident in ‘Untitled’ (1957), a luminous painting produced during Devrim’s time in Paris.
