Description

The painting depicts a marketplace (or bazaar) in North Africa, possibly Morocco. Stands selling goods are set up in a cobbled street which is lined with crenelated stone buildings. Figures in colourful clothes and draped with loose white fabrics stand in the street and gather around these market stalls. Some are accompanied by donkeys which are loaded with bags. A small dog is depicted in the left foreground.

This painting has been rendered using sketchy, visible brushstrokes. These expressive marks effectively convey the activity of the marketplace. The work is created using oil paint on wooden panel. It is displayed in a giltwood frame which is carved with stylised foliage and floral motifs.

‘Victor Eeckhout’ is signed in the lower left corner. Eeckhout was an accomplished Belgian artist who was active in the late 19th Century. He trained under his father, Jacob Joseph Eeckhout, who was a prestigious artist and director of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. Victor Eeckhout was well-known for his Orientalist paintings which were inspired by his travels to Morocco.
