Zeinab El-Seginy

Born in Cairo, Al Sageny graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in 1956. Later she earned her PHD in Art Education from Helwan University, in 1978.

Al Sageny’s Art is unique, revealing subjects of humane nature. Mother and child represent the main elements in Al Sageny’s art. They play a main role in expressing feelings of innocence, love and generosity. The setting is Egypt: the Nile, the mountains, the beach; In fact, Al Sageny’s ancestral culture, with the inherited roots, emphasize her Egyptian identity.

Al Sageny describes her work, as” an intermixture of a spiritual nature drawing its source from the Coptic icons, with its adoration and reverence, alongside the wonders of the Islamic miniatures…”
