💛Jean Discart - L'ATELIER DE POTERIE, TANGER💙 👉What this painting inspires you? Share you thoughts below. 💛The pottery painter is surrounded by objects of his trade captured in exquisite detail: tankards, dishes, water jugs and buckets; all of which are typical of North Africa. The large platter to the right of the painter with the distinctive vibrant blue, green, and yellow pattern is an example of Fez pottery. In the fifteenth century, skilled Moorish pottery makers fled Spain for Morocco, settling in Fez, Meknes, Safi and Marrakech. Upon arriving they rebuilt their kilns and for the next four hundred years, Moroccan potters, particularly those in Fez, flourished and produced some of the highest quality examples of their trade in the Islamic world. The straw basket on the shelf to the right is a common tagine serving piece, and the item on the left shelf next to the large round dish is an example of Berber ceramics.💙 💛Jean Discart painted Orientalist subjects through the 1920s, however, and judging from the inscription 'Tanger' on many of his works, it seems likely that he visited the Moroccan city. Discart's affection for his subject is stunningly apparent in the painstaking attention to detail in the exquisite L'Atelier de poterie, Tanger. The painterly beauty and masterful handling of composition in the present work firmly positions Discart among the finest painters of this genre. 💙 ⭐Colorful Morocco 🇲🇦 👇 Tag & share with your friends 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️ 📣 ➡ Feel free to repost and don't forget to tag @colorfulmorocco ⚡ ⚡ @sandrasclerigo @wonderlust.morocco @moroccan__carpet @m94i99 @simplymorocco @travelling_morocco @inmarrakech @idriss_sghir @dinarabolat ⚡ ⚡ #colorfulmorocco #exploremorocco #travelphotography #loves_morocco #casablanca #africa #tangier #chefchaouen #moroccotravel #inmorocco #travelinspired #maroc #marrakech #travelpics #марокко #moroccan #beautifuldestinations #moroccotrip #ig_morocco #marocain #travelgram #igersmorocco #モロッコ #tetouan #fes #marruecos #rabat #travelmorocco #atlastmountain #simplymorocco

Ocean view. Going to take a moment to bask in this memory... This week is a particularly meaningful one. Defined by a memory of last year. I may be here now, and that's fine, but last year, I was in Morocco...and it was beautiful. All hail the travel life. . #essaouira #citadel #portcity #daytrippin #seagulls #atlanticocean #memories #morocco #traveltogether #canadianabroad #moroccotravel #moroccovacations #wanderlust #travelmorocco #ig_morocco #morocco🇲🇦 #inm#inmorocco #inmorocco #travel_captures #worldtravelpics #lonelyplanet #simplymorocco #northafrica #lostinmorocco #oceanbreeze #postcardmoment #traveldiary #incrediblemorocco #visitessaouira #loves_morocco #natgeotravel
