AMERICAN 1849–1903
MARKET SCENE AT MOGADOR
OIL ON CANVAS, 1881
A son of wealthy parents, American artist Edwin
Lord Weeks was encouraged to follow his interests
in travel and painting. Thus, he studied in Paris with
Léon Bonnat, an artist in the circle of French Orientalists,
and traveled extensively throughout the Middle East
and North Africa. He spent several months in Morocco
during the course of two long trips in the late 1870s,
making sketches that formed the basis for many later
paintings.
Mogador is another name for the city of Essaouira,
located on Morocco’s western coast. It functioned as
the harbor for the inland city of Marrakesh.
