Description
Hammad Jabran (1917-1993) - Bab Chorfa, Fez
Oil on canvas - Signed lower right

Hammad Jabran, self-taught with golden fingers
Born in the Ouarzazate region probably in 1917, Hammad Jabran, made a career as a painter decorator in hotels and restaurants in Morocco. Unknown until March 2015, his paintings arrived on the French art market, probably as a result of his succession and were a rapidly growing success. A realist painter deeply in love with his country, he knows how to capture the slightest touches of shade, light and restore with strength and delicacy, the hubbub and animation of the medinas of Rabat, Casablanca, Mogador (Essaouira), Fez, Marrakech, Meknes or Tangier.
Bab Chorfa is a beautiful monumental door. Built of bricks, it is crowned with merlons. It is flanked by two impressive octagonal towers, which are also topped by merlons that are different from those that decorate the door itself.
