Wonderful street scene in early 20th century Morocco. If you are looking for Arab and/or Bedouin culture related antiques then you could not wish for a more original and authentic work of art. This fine quality painting is completely original (with the original wooden frame and antique glass panel). This 'old world' Arab street scene perfectly captures the tranquil energy of early 20th century Morocco. We are not sure, but we think this street scene was painted in the third largest city of Morocco, named Fez. What we are certain of, is that Leo Eland (1884-1952) for creating this work of art bought his paint locally, because these particular vibrant colors orange, blue and yellow would only have been available locally. Because the paint was made of local, natural materials, they still look as bright as they looked when this work of art was just finished. The light that fills the left side of this painting, combined with the glorious and vibrant colors creates a wonderful depth and they really make this painting come alive. We have always felt that finding good wall decorations is the most challenging when completing an interior, but this work of art will look great almost everywhere. Again great value, also, because worldwide delivery from our store to your door in just 4 days is complimentary. Maximum width x height x depth: 25.2 x 17.7 x 0.8 inches. We have a passion for the unique, for quality, for stylish yet practical and for craftsmanship of years gone by.
