This painting is set in Morocco and is a classic Hulings composition: from the white walls and the terra cotta tile roof, to the play of light and shadow over the cobblestone street. The people are engaged in various activities: you might first notice the man stepping towards us into the shadow of the tree on the right, and then see the semi-circle of chatting market vendors just behind.
The soothing color palette, punctuated by small pops of color, is also a typical Hulings feature, and is a nod to modern life that makes this both a classic and a timeless vision of a "Souk" or Middle Eastern market, which have existed in the region for more than two-thousand years.
Printed on paper in limited editions and signed.
