Huguette Caland (née El Khoury) (Arabic: أوغيت الخوري ; born 1931), is a Lebanese painter, sculptor[1] and fashion designer[2] living in Los Angeles,[3] noted for her nudes.[4] Caland, whose father, Bechara El Khoury was the first president of Lebanon from 1943 to 1952, co-founded INAASH (Association for the Development of Palestinian Camps), which creates jobs for refugee women and sells their embroidery.[5] She inspired a "historic"[6] exhibition on Palestinian embroidery at the Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles.
