Sultan Sooud Al Qassemi Arab artists wish list

Some of you may know that I am working on a new museum of contemporary and modern Arab art in Sharjah, UAE to house my collection. I hope it would be open by March 2010. So far I have been able to acquire over 200 pieces of Arab art from across the region including Louay Kayyali and Fateh Moudarres (both from Syria), Chafic Aboud (Lebanon), Sulaiman Mansour (Palestine), Abdallah Al Muharraqi (Bahrain), Abdul Qader Al Rayyes (UAE) and Adam Henein (Egypt) amongst many others. Below is a list of Arab artists that I am keen on having represented as well in the museum so any help is welcomed. The painting above is by Mahmoud Hammad, a Syrian artist who lived from 1923-1988. This work is the latest acquisition for the museum collection.
