Painting - Turkey
Müfide Kadri was a Turkish artist who lived between 1889 and 1912. She was the first known Muslim woman painter and painting teacher in the Ottoman Empire. Also, Müfide Kadri was the first Turkish woman artist who received an award (at an exhibition in Germany). She worked mostly on portraits, landscapes and still life, which were characterized by her poetic tone and the expression of feelings. Furthermore, Kadri was interested in composing songs and playing the piano, violin and traditional instruments. After her death, a solo exhibition was organized by her father and around forty of her works were donated to the Ottoman Painters Society.
