The Moroccan people as well as the countrys textiles, pottery, architecture, plants, and flowers form the subjects of many of Bravos exquisite paintings and drawings. Suffused with the special light of Morocco, they testify to a grand lineage of artistic inspiration and exploration between Western and Arabic worlds. But along with dazzling technique and refined beauty, Bravos paintings also manifest a transcendental spirituality and an exceptional fidelity to both the magnificent and the homely. Claudio Bravo and Morocco is the English-language edition of the important catalogue published on the occasion of the artists solo exhibition at the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris. This major exhibition presented 67 paintings that specifically related to Bravos relationship with Morocco--all are reproduced here. Included as well are an illustrated biography, scholarly essays, and an extensive interview conducted especially for this publication.
