Morocco by European artists - متحف تاريخي
Marrakesh's Orientalist Museum houses a collection of paintings of Morocco by European artists of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. They belong to the school known as “orientalist”, meaning that they show a romanticized, European image of the Islamic world.
The oldest works here are some drawings by Eugène Delacroix, who came to Morocco in 1832, and is sometimes regarded as being “the father of orientalism”.
Other artists represented include Jacques Majorelle, who created the famous Majorelle Garden, and Henri Pontoy, a friend of Majorelle's, who lived in Morocco from 1927 until 1965.
The collection is housed in a nicely restored old riad, very near to the Maison de la Photographie, which you could conveniently visit at the same time.
