Biography from
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Adil Dogancay, the father of Burhan Dogancay, was born in Istanbul in 1900.  He was an officer in the Turkish army and also a well-known painter.  His works are predominantly impressionistic land-and seascapes as well as still life in oil on canvas. Although few of his paintings are dated, most of them were completed between 1940 and 1990, the year he died.

Adil Dogancay received his artistic training from Major Seref Bey at the Eyup Military Academy and from Major Tahsin Bey, a seascape artist from Diyarbakir, at the Topography School.  He fought in the Turkish War of Independence, and was awarded the Independence Medal.  As a topographer, he traveled all over Anatolia, which gave him the opportunity to spend hours surrounded by nature.  The artist produced most of his paintings outdoors, calling nature his ‘greatest teacher’.

Adil Dogancay took part in many group shows held by the Society of Retired Officer Painters, the Society of Topography Officer Painters, and the Ankara Society for Fine Arts, as well as the Turkish Painters and Fine Arts Association, of which he was a member.

His works were also shown at the prestigious annual State Painting and Sculpture exhibitions in Ankara.  In addition he held many one-man shows in Ankara and Istanbul as well as joint exhibitions with his son, Burhan Dogancay.  During his visit to the United States, he was Visiting Artist at group exhibitions at The National Arts Club in New York in 1963 and 1964.

His work is exhibited at the Dogancay Museum in Istanbul.
