Kristin Saleri

During the spring 2016 semester, the Henry Madden Library has the unprecedented opportunity to present a retrospective exhibition of artwork by Kristin Saleri (1915 to 1987), a pioneering 20th century artist of Armenian heritage who lived and painted in Istanbul.

Despite the challenges presented by her gender and ethnicity, she secured her place as a member of the founding generation that created modern art in Turkey.
