Drawing at Palais Sebban in Marrakech
The Palais Sebban was constructed around the magnificent residence of Caíd Sebban.
Located close to the Ban Lahksour gate into the Medina. This 19th century palace has been
intensively renovated to incorporate several original riads while maintaining the
authenticity of its three patios. The roofs are made of painted wood, festooned with
frescoes that are intricately carved from plaster. The Palais is adorned with stained glass
and mosaic tiles ("zellij"). Different pieces, of great historic value, have been fitted into
spacious rooms and suites that are furnished with oriental antiques.
My studio was within a pillared shrine that overlooks a central mosaic pool, a real oasis
away from the dust of the old city and the heat of the day.
