Moroccan Street Scene by Willard Leroy Metcalf
Metcalf’s landscapes were traditional renditions of peasant scenes, in the manner of Jean Millet (1814 – 1875). These works were characterized by visible, rapid brushstrokes which brought lightness to the composition. Moroccan Street Scene is quite different from the majority of his paintings. The subject is a Moroccan scene of figures going about their daily life with attention to Islamic architecture in the background. This painting was executed during Metcalf’s travels to North Africa.
