Washington post WWW site, viewed Nov. 18, 2021 (in obituary dated Nov. 16, 2021For more than half a century, Etel Adnan pursued dual vocations, writing novels, poems and essays that grappled with war and history, even as she made paintings, tapestries and ceramic sculptures that reflected her love of nature and the cosmos. Ms. Adnan, a Lebanese American who grew up in Beirut and spent decades in the Bay Area, was a celebrated author who found late-in-life fame as an artist. Ms. Adnan was 96 when she died Nov. 14 at her home in Paris. Writing in French and English, Ms. Adnan published some two-dozen books. Hundreds of her paintings focused on Mount Tamalpais, which she could see from her home in Sausalito. Etel Adnan was born in Beirut on Feb. 24, 1925. Ms. Adnan eventually turned to philosophy, studying at the Sorbonne in Paris and then at the University of California at Berkeley and Harvard University. She became a philosophy professor in 1958 at Dominican College (now a university) in San Rafael, Calif., and began painting the next year. In 1972, she returned to Beirut, where she worked as a culture editor and editorial writer for a French-language newspaper)
