Margo Veillon, one of Egypt's best known and best loved artists, has long been fascinated by the Egyptian countryside and the world of the fellahin - the color and bustle of their villages, their hard labor in the fields. Here in this exceptional book is her collected vision of that world:decades' worth of paintings, sketches, and photographs that capture all the color, vitality, toil, and dignity of life on the land under Egypt's blazing but beneficent sun. She records the women's chores, the floodwaters, the irrigation of the fields, their ploughing, the reaping of wheat and sugarcane, the picking of tomatoes and bananas. Her strong, rapid lines translate the calm, slow movements of the laborers with brio but also with serenity.
Margo Veillon was born in Cairo in 1907, the daughter of a Swiss businessman and his Austrian wife. She spent much of her artistic career capturing the verve and movement of daily life in Egypt, and since 1936, the world of Upper Egypt and Nubia. She died in 2003.
