A captivating and expressive mid 20th century oil painting presenting an everyday scene of a lively local town in Morocco.
The sky is beaming blue, and it is a scorching hot day, as the sun’s strong rays have illuminated the colourful line up of buildings and stalls, and the pathway.
A group of Moroccan men can be seen passing through. They are dressed in turbans and djillabas, which is a long outer robe and is one of the most popular forms of traditional Moroccan clothing. Donkeys, which are an integral part of Moroccan life, are featured in this painting, as a man is depicted riding on one as his main mode of transportation.
Moroccans are known for their warmth, openness and sociability, and this painting so wonderfully captures the essence of their nature- the rich and warm array of colours used in this painting is so vibrant and welcoming, and are harmonised extremely well together; and the expressionistic brushstrokes used imbue the painting with much vigor and liveliness.
This oil on canvas comes in a unique vintage grey wooden frame with a linen slip.
Size: 63.5 x 74.5 cm (including frame)
