In memoriam: Marwan Kassab Bachi (1934–2016).

Kassab Bachi, one of the most prolific Arab painters, has never exhibited in the Arts Club of Chicago. Yet three of his drawings were found on the backs of three framed artworks in the club’s storage. It remains unclear whether these were drawn by Marwan himself or by an anonymous friend, admirer, backer, critic, defamer, or other.
