It is not often that a private collection dedicates itself entirely to providing a full overview of almost a century of art from one region. However, during many long years living in the United Kingdom, Syrian-British couple Rona and Walid Jalanbo viewed art collecting as a natural link back to their heritage and culture.

The Jalanbo Collection, one of the finest collections of modern Syrian art in private hands, couldn’t enter the public sphere at a better time. With Syria war-torn, and its cultural scene and ancient ruins being destroyed, we are lucky to have such an important slice of Syria’s cultural legacy in the safe hands of this collection.
