Effat Naghi

In 1963, Effat Nagui was chosen as one of the Egyptian artists to participate in a journey to Upper Egypt. This trip was organized by the Egyptian Ministry of Culture to visit and witness the stages of work in the Aswan Dam and record ancient Nubia before being submerged by the waters of the dam. Ten years prior to this date, Effat Nagui was married to artist Saad El Khadem, researcher in heritage and popular art. This stage in her life was a turning point for Effat Nagui, one that raised her at the peak of artists in Egypt and the Arab world and established her as one of the greatest artists in the world.

 

With such abundance of wealth and uniqueness in her artistic innovations, she transcended the traditional surface of canvas and shaped her relief creations with wonderful magical forms and dimensions going beyond the palettes soft hues to blazing colours drawn from the Egyptian atmosphere and environment of the South that permeate fragrance and radiance of civilizations, and evoke vitality and popular art. In fact, Mohamed Nagui, her brother, said to her before his death in 1956, You have surpassed me..I remained a prisoner in my academic discipline and you have soared to the horizons of modernism with its wide ranging and unlimited scope.

 

During this stage, Effat painted next to her brother Mohamed Nagui pioneer of Egyptian pictorial and modern art with the same vision and disciplines she acquired during her studies in Italy in 1948. She later continued under Andre Lott, the world famous artist as well as researcher and critic.

 

She adopted unusual shapes derived from books on magic, from ancient Arab manuscripts, symbols, decorations, Zodiac signs, mechanical designs and luminous spheres of the universe from the mystique of all these inherited shapes that inspired her interpretation and exceeded prevailing modernism during and after her time.. This placed her in an important and lofty status among artists in Egypt and the Arab world. Moreover, her name was related to a school, one based on abstracts and discovery of engineering origins in architectural construction integrated together with decorative forms..a school with wide ranging ambitions influenced by music, poetry, the theater infusing an intimate spirit into the work of art.

 

Effat Nagui was the first artist whose works were housed in the Museum of Modern Art in Cairo in 1928 and after she passed away on 3rd October 1994 in her atelier in Moharram Bey, Alexandria at the age of 90 years. The atelier was demolished but Effat and her husband Saad El Khadems house in Cairo was transformed into one of the most important art museums . Her innovations will ultimately continue to be a singular landmark and a great sacrifice.
