The exhibition borrows heavily from the collection of Istanbul University, to which Duran donated all of his works.
The Sakıp Sabancı Museum's new show brings together an astonishing selection of 1000 works that pay tribute to the life and art of Feyhaman Duran, who left his homeland in 1911, during the final years of the Ottoman Empire, to study painting in Paris under the influence of Impressionist painters. In addition to paintings by Duran, the selection also includes a life-sized replica of the home he shared with his wife Güzin Duran, who was also a painter. You’ll also get to see replicas of both artists’ studios, complete with their old paintbrushes and palettes.
