In the Palms of Marrakesh
Very atmospheric image of a beautiful young black girl sitting beneath palm trees wearing nothing more that a few pieces of ornate jewellery.
Her proud look, the fabulous colour of her ebony skin and her short, boyish hair would have appealed to the jazz age generation in Paris who, in the 1920's and 30's would regularly flock to shows featuring such entertainers as the hugely popular Josephine Baker.
This is another print from a French magazine published in 1935, the original having been painted by the artist J. Majorelle.
Mounted, framed and ready to hang, the overall size is around 45.5 cm. high and 35 cm wide.
