PAINTING
SELECTED WORKS

The MACMA Museum is proud to present its collection of Orientalist painters, one of the richest and most varied. It reflects in an exemplary way a vision often distorted and fantasized of the Europeans of the 19th century regarding the East, for which Tanger was often the door, but also the only source of inspiration. Cavalcades and caravans, scenes of streets or interiors (most often imagined), portraits of warriors or feminine, preceded a more realistic inspiration and also historical testimonies magnified by the extraordinary landscapes of the country, its colors and its fascinating luminosity.
