Moroccan Legends - N° 6 Chaibia talal

Younes laassouli | Stand : FA07

Oil painting on canvas of a Chaibia Talal Born in 1929 in Chtouka near El Jadida, Chaïbia grew up in the countryside. She married at the age of 13 and became a widow and mother at the age of 15. Self-taught, she began painting in 1963 after hearing a voice in a dream say: "Chaïbia, take the colors and paint!".Chaibia Talal remained illiterate her whole life, but devoted to her son's education. In 1965, her son introduced her to the director of the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, Pierre Gaudibert, who was impressed by her work. Her works were exhibited at the Goeth-institute in Casablanca and the Museum of Modern Art in Paris in 1966. Talal's "Outsider art" was influenced by the CoBrA painting movement and considered by some to be naïve.
