Moroccan Street Scene by Willard Leroy Metcalf

Dublin Core

Title

Moroccan Street Scene by Willard Leroy Metcalf

Description

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.
