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

The Lebanese artist Shafic Abboud lived mainly in France. He found the title for this painting in his daughter Christine’s question: “Do you know the sea?” while he was at Varengeville-sur-Mer in Normandy, where he painted several pictures inspired by the marine environment. Abboud was an abstract narrator interested in the notion of signs, who transposed the sensations felt when contemplating nature into his paintings. His work also reflected the memory of Byzantine icons and the influence of Nicolas de Staël
