La vie et l'œuvre de Jacques Majorelle: 1886-1962
Jacques Majorelle grew up in France. He was the son of a famous cabinetmaker from Nancy, Louis Majorelle. When he began his travels, he was immediately attracted to the South of Morocco. The sensitivity of his work distinguishes him amongst the Orientalist painters. He sought to understand the subtle nuances of life in the country he loved. Whether painting landscapes from the Atlas or scenes within a casbah, he infused his subjects with poetry and captured the authentic personality of the South.

J'ai visité les jardins Majorelle à Marrakech, en ai apprécié la douceur, mais en découvrant l'oeuvre de son créateur à travers ce magnifique ouvrage, il me semble en deviner l'essence.
