The war art of Hayri Çizel

Post by Peter H » 20 Jun 2007 10:26

Hayri Çizel (Hasan Hayrettin), was born in Dimetoka, Adrianople. After the secondary school, he has studied fine arts and graduated in 1914… Then, he has participated in Gallipoli Front of the Great War as a reserve officer.

He took lessons from the ‘masters’ of his time such as Adil Bey, Werniya and famous painter Valery. Because his first place in the school, he has sent to Münich, Germany and he worked there in Hoffman’s atelier. He was one of the senior paint and art teachers of İstanbul High School. He died in 1950, October 13th at the age of 62.

Actually, as an artist who served quietly for Turkish paintings, Mr. Çizel has tried to explain the Turkish soldiers in the Balkan, Gallipoli and Turkish Independence War. With his works, he has put a light of the Turkish soldiers’ history painting their gallantry in the front, resignation in the trenches and his normal life in the back…

As a painter, he was an exceptional person who could stay far from cruelity of the war; in his pastel colors, even the war have seen such pretty and sad…
