She attracted a lot of people by her aura of light, her wisdom, her selflessness, her immeasurable generosity. Her talent and incredibly rich body of work will undeniably continue to influence and inspire the art world for decades to come. Our sincere condolences go out to her family, friends, and to all those who knew and loved her.

“Etel Adnan, poet, painter, eternal sun. In life, as in death, a gentle giant. Thank you for believing till the very last breath that love is our only salvation; for showing us what it means to stand so defiantly and radically with and for love. Meeting you five years ago at your home in Paris was an otherworldly experience that I carry with me to this day. May you rest in eternal peace. May your words and landscapes continue to inspire generations and generations to come.”

“Lebanese painter and poet Etel Adnan is dead. She was 96 years old. At the microphone of Radio Orient, she had returned in particular to her learning French in Beirut. We will listen to this archive from 5:30 #RadioOrient”

“Etel Adnan was a Lebanese-American poet, essayist, and visual artist, the most celebrated and most successful Arab American writer. AG emphasizes her importance, using the death of this lovely woman for her own promotion. His soullessness is disgraceful, disgusting, and despicable.” Etel Adnan Obituary will be released by the family at a suitable time.
