Sursock Museum organizes "Regards sur Beyrouth: 160 ans d'images"
Sursock Museum, in the Lebanese capital of Beirut, organized "Regards sur Beyrouth: 160 ans d'images" exhibition, on Tuesday.
The exhibition is "bringing together over 240 rarely seen works from private collections - including paintings, photographs, and etchings - of the city's [Beirut] historical evolution from a provincial Ottoman town to the capital of a nation state, from 1800 to 1960," the Museum's Media Department chief Muriel Kahwaji told KUNA.
With a trajectory spanning 160 years, Beirut's urban and social transformations are examined through six aspects of its geography: the panorama, the port, the city, the coast, the provinces, and the surrounding hillsides, she added.
