As I was sitting at the Buying Committee of the Tate Modern, my eyes were arrested in awe and also complete ignorance by a piece from an artist I did not know about, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian. I was struck by the strength of her art. The fact that she is a woman working in Iran, in her 80s, made her even more striking.

Choucair, who still lives in Beirut, developed passionate interests in architecture, Islamic art, and then Western abstract art. These influence her work.
