Old Arabia - Birthplace Sheikh Zayed

About this painting

(Click on painting and print examples to show full images)


H.H. SHeikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan is the founder of the United Arab Emirates. When the United Kingdom gave the 'Trucial Coast' its independence in 1971 Sheikh Zayed of Abu Dhabi, convinced neighbouring Sheikhdoms to join with Abu Dhabi in forming the United Arab Emirate; the rest, as they say, is history.


I received a photograph of this view from a friend who also informed me this is where the founder of the UAE was born. I could see it a perfect subject for a painting, so I painted in soft pastel on Canson Mi-Tientes textured brown paper approx 12" x 16".
