Mansur Tamir Abraham was born in 1912 in Aden, at that time under British rule. As a legal advisor, he was a highly regarded authority on African and Asian rule of law. M.T. Abraham’s expertise and advice were greatly valued by the British authorities and he was acknowledged for his distinguished service with the George Medal for law scholarship. Like most members of the family, Abraham was an art enthusiast and dedicated most of his time to deepening his appreciation and understanding of the fine arts. Following Abraham’s death in 1999, his legacy and passion passed to his children and grandchildren. In tribute to and in honor of Abraham, and because of their continuing interest in art scholarship, his descendants established The M.T. Abraham Foundation in 2004.
