Description for the presentation 2013-2014 in the National Museum of Modern Art

In 1911, the Egyptian-born artist Mahmoud Moukhtar continued his art studies in Paris at Bourdelle’s studio. He met the future leader of Egyptian independence, Saad Zaghlul, and took up the nationalist cause. He was considered the father of 20th century Egyptian sculpture. His work reflects a desire to meld references taken from Ancient Egyptian myths with the formal inventions of modern European sculpture – as with The Fiancée of the Nile.
