The French painter, Jaques Gatti, is currently exhibiting, for the first time, his recent paintings, inspired by the lights and landscapes of Morocco. The show is being held in the city of Tangier.
Philip Arnaut, the director of the Lawrence-Arnot Art Gallery, which hosts the exhibition, explained that Jaques Gatti's work is unique in its authenticity and sensitivity and hence in its ability to capture the real shapes and colors of Morocco.
Gatti was born in Algiers in 1927 to a family of artists. During his 50-year career, he has received several awards for his work, including the George Hyon award (1982), and the first prizes of the international fair of Saint-Raphael (France, 1985) and of the Navy museums (France, 1998). <i>EMarrakech</i> reports that Jacques Gatti's exhibition will continue until May 21.
