Seif and Adham Wanli
Permanent Exhibition

The Wanli brothers were eminent figures in Alexandrian art in the period spanning the 1940s to the 1970s, and are widely celebrated by the intellectual and cultural circles in the city. Renowned for their spontaneity and innovation, Seif and Adham Wanli had a distinct style in quick sketching and quick touch painting which captures the warmth of emotions. They had a special interest in painting theatrical scenes, opera, classical and folkloric dance, and the circus.

The exhibition holds a wonderful collection of expressive paintings portraying athletic movements and depicting motions related to football, tennis, boxing, and cycling.
