La Montagne Liban (Mount Lebanon), was executed by partners and artists Etel Adnan and Simone Fattal. The two women collaborated to create an otherworldly depiction of Mount Lebanon in saturated yellow. Under what appears to be a sun and a moon, their washed brushstrokes of pastel pink, blue and yellow illustrate a painterly landscape of day and night seemingly collapsing into one another. Produced when the two artists first met, the painting is an ode to their shared experiences and mutual affinity with the natural world. A rare collaboration by Adnan, a poet, scholar and painter and Simone, a sculptor, painter and translator, lovingly combines their styles.
