Doris Bittar was born in Baghdad, Iraq of Lebanese parentage and her early childhood was spent in the outskirts of Beirut, Lebanon. Her memories of Lebanon are rich with pattern, from Oriental rugs to her mother’s embroidery. Her family immigrated to New York where eventually she studied Fine Arts. In the United States, Bittar’s observations both coincided and clashed with the portrayal of the “exotic Orient” and the various images of Arabs, Jews and Europeans.
