From 1908, Majorelle travelled to Spain, Egypt and Italy before settling in Morocco in 1917. There, he developed a singular chromatic language that gave him a place among his contemporaries free of any influence.

In Marrakech, he was fascinated by the light and vibrant colours of the city and its inhabitants. He first settled in Villa Bou Saf Saf, then in the cubist villa designed by the architect Paul Sinoir, which today houses the Berber Museum of the Jardin Majorelle Foundation.

For almost forty years, he tirelessly painted the different atmospheres of the souks, scenes of daily life and the singular beauty of the models who came to pose for him. His many trips to the kasbahs of the Atlas mountains and other Moroccan towns enabled him to capture all the richness of the landscapes, architecture and markets, or the ceremonies he witnessed first-hand.

In the 1940s, the discovery of sub-Saharan Africa led to an aesthetic and chromatic renewal that accompanied all his work right up to his last creations.

This lavishly illustrated book, edited by Félix and Amélie Marcilhac, specialists in the painter's work, looks back over the artist's entire career.
