    Jacques Majorelle (1886-1962) is an emblematic figure of Orientalism. The son of the
    cabinet-maker Louis Majorelle, he trained at the Ecole nationale des Beaux-arts appliques of
    Nancy then in Paris, at the Academie Julian.
    Majorelle travelled through Spain, Egypt and Italy, starting from 1908. In 1917 he moved to
    Morocco. There, he developed a singular chromatic language which gave him a place divested of
    all influences among his contemporaries.
    Landscapes, bazaar scenes, and portraits, he based his art around the city of Marrakech where
    he lived, as well as across the rest of Morocco. He gathered inspiration from his many trips to
    Sudan, Guinea and Cote d'Ivoire, amassing a considerable oeuvre of over 1,000 works in which
    light, colour and a certain viewpoint on exoticism played a decisive role.
