ANN: New book by Alex Seggerman, Modernism on the Nile Art in Egypt between the Islamic and the Contemporary

While the work of diverse, major Egyptian artists during this era may have appeared to be secular, she argues, it reflected the subtle but essential inflection of Islam, as a faith, history, and lived experience, in the overarching development of Middle Eastern modernity.
