Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris

From 30 January to 9 June 2024


An Algerian by adoption, Étienne Dinet (1861-1929) is one of the few Orientalist painters to have escaped the reproach of exoticism and the trial of the colonial gaze. The IMA invites you to (re)discover his work, which has become one of the visual identities of post-independence Algeria - national historiography has gone so far as to make him a figure of nascent nationalism, which he was not - and to read in it the passion he nourished for a country whose land, faith and cause he espoused.

Following its success at the IMA-Tourcoing, the exhibition has now moved to Paris.
Galerie Ary Jan is delighted to be taking part in this superb exhibition by loaning two works by the artist.
