Why is Google Doodle celebrating today?

On this day in 2020, Jalal Talabani, the former country’s president described an Iraqi artist, educator, and author as the first Iraqi woman who anchored the pillars of Iraqi contemporary art. The Barjeel Art Foundation also featured Naziha Salim in their collection of female artists on April 23, 2020.

Early life of Naziha Salim

Salim was born into an Iraqi artist family in Turkey, where her father was a painter and her mother was a talented embroiderer. All three of her brothers worked in the arts, according to Google, including Jawad, who is widely regarded as one of Iraq’s most significant sculptors. She has always enjoyed creating her own paintings.

She was one of the first women to receive a scholarship to study art abroad.  She received a scholarship to continue her art education in Paris after graduating from the Baghdad Fine Arts Institution in the 1940s.  Salim returned to the Fine Arts Institute as a teacher in the 1960s and stayed there until she retired in the 1980s.

She was a founding member of Al-Ruwwad (also known as the “Avante Garde or Primitive group”), the first group of Iraqi artists to study abroad and seek to blend current European art techniques into a distinctly Iraqi style. Later generations of Iraqi artists were greatly influenced by this group.

When did Naziha Salim die?

Naziha Salim was paralyzed after suffering a stroke in 2003. She lived for another five years, dying at the age of 81 in Baghdad. Her death was described by President Jalal Talabani as a major loss to Iraqi art and culture.
