Ragheb Ayad


Born in Cairo, Egypt. Ayad is always remembered as the most independent artist of the first generation of Egyptian artists who started when the Prince Youssef Kamel Art School was established in 1908.


He spontaneously gave a very strong impression blending his art with his passion to the simple traditional life in all of it’s interesting forms, painting Egypt’s peasant daily life with such an original sincerity.
