Winston Churchill, Mosque at Marrakech (1948) - Meetings in Marrakech

Sir Winston Churchill spent many winters in Marrakech visiting Si Hassan El Glaouis family. Sir Winston Churchill is the one who discovered that his host's son Hassan had a hidden passion, painting. Sir Winston Churchill persuaded the Pacha to let his son Hassan move to Paris where he could pursue painting courses with the greatest masters of the forties. El Glaoui went on to become one of most celebrated Moroccan painters of modern times,

This catalogue from a show at London's Leighton House Museum presents paintings of both Sir Winston Churchill and Si Hassan El Glaoui that evoke Marrakech of the forties. Highlights include Churchill's River near Marrakech (1935), his The Mosque at Marrakech (1948), El Glaoui's Les trois calèches (1969-70) and Résidence Stynia à Marrakech (1940-45)
