Presentation of the artist

A major Moroccan artist of the 20th century, Chaïbia Talal is one of the main representatives of naive art, this figuration ignores the rules of perspective, the realism of colours and the academicism of drawing.

A self-taught painter attached to popular subjects, she is nicknamed the "peasant of the arts". Chaïbia Talal does not seek to propose realistic representations, but its own vision of the world, in which the Moroccan woman occupies a central place. A vision of the cheerful world made of simple pleasures and human warmth, transcribed through the use of bright and warm colours arranged in wide flat areas.

The whole is a joyful colourful patchwork in movement, enhanced in places by large black and expressive lines that define the contours of its characters. This portrait of a woman holding her child thus becomes the symbol/expression of the joys of maternal love.
