Article

The École de Tunis was an elite circle of Tunisian, French, and Italian artists formed in 1948 and credited for pioneering a Tunisian artistic modernism. Both the group’s membership and aesthetic purview evolved over the course of the late nationalist and post-Independence periods. Pierre Boucherle, a French artist born in Tunis, founded the group. With Tunisian independence in 1956 Yahia Turki became its president. Affiliation with the École de Tunis was exclusive to elite artists but fluid.
