Field of Activity

Painting

In 1939 Sabiha Bozcalı was the first woman painter to go to the coal mines on the Black Sea coast and paint life as she saw it there. She was in Zonguldak, the city established as a port for the nearby coal mines, as a member of a special "Travelling Artists" programme, the aim of which was to send artists to different places in Turkey in order to bring artists and people together. In Zonguldak Sabiha Bozcalı painted industrial scenes such as electric power stations, iron and steel plants, machines and factories.
The titles of her paintings appear in the lists of the exhibitions in which she took part but the whereabouts of these paintings is now unknown. Private collections only include landscapes and still-life paintings by Sabiha Bozcalı.
