Modern Art + Design presents Jacques Majorelle


Jacques Majorelle Dancers in Goulimine



Majorelle used the blue colour, which now bears the name Majorelle Blue, not only to his house and garden but also in his paintings. In his artistic oeuvre, Majorelle adopted a revolutionary style and experimented with mixed media techniques, for example, he used powdered metal pigments to give the surface of his paintings a distinct and reflective look. For his motifs, he drew inspiration from the local Moroccan inhabitants, their clothes, and traditions as well as landscapes in Marrakech and around the Atlas Mountains. The work to be sold depicts dancers in traditional clothing that he saw during excursions in the Goulimine area.
