Dr Ramzi Dalloul Portrait

Dr Ramzi Dalloul, Palestinian-born, London-based businessman and avid collector, sadly passed away yesterday, March 24th, 2021.

Dalloul occupied a special place within the arts communities of the MENA region, leaving behind a legacy of an unparalleled collection of works by Arab artists. His aim: to tell the story of the political and social realities of the Arab world. The collection is kept at the Ramzi & Saeda Dalloul foundation that his son, Dr Basel Dalloul, founded.

We were fortunate to interview Dr Ramzi Dalloul for Selections magazine on several occasions. Here is one of our most cherished encounters with him.
