Hassan EL GLAOUI (1924-2018) The charge of the riders or "Fantasia". Oil painting and gouache on paper mounted on panel by the artist (mixed technique). 76,5 x 106 cm at sight. Signed lower right. Note : Hassan el Glaoui was born in 1924 in Marrakech. He lives and works in Rabat. He owes his career as a painter to the very influential British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill who spent many stays in Marrakech with the Pasha and who insisted that he allow his son Hassan to paint. Hassan El Glaoui was then sent to France, at the end of the 40s, to study painting in Paris, with the great painters of the time. His first personal exhibition took place in 1950 in Paris, followed by that of New York in 1952. In 1957, he participated in the 2nd Biennial of Alexandria and in 1963 in the exhibition "Two thousand years of art in Morocco", at the Charpentier gallery in Paris. Very famous for the horses he represents, especially in fantasias, the artist paints with finesse the saddles covered with velvet, the burnous in a movement of flight, the damascened rifles... He describes and recounts scenes that he has seen and experienced and thus makes reference to memory, history and artistic heritage. Hassan El Glaoui has not only sublimated the theme of the horse and its rider, he has also devoted himself to the portrait and still life.
