Isidorius Maria Cornelis VAN MENS - Portrait of an Arabian

Isidorius Maria Cornelis VAN MENS
(Berlicume 1890 - Oosterhout 1985)

Portait of an Arabian, 1926

Black charcoal and coloured pastel on paper, cm. 29 x 23,5
Signed and dated upper right: Souvenir respectueux/ a M.me Duval/ Is-Van Mens./ Rabat 2.9.1926.

The Portrait of an Arabic drawing, dating 1926, was depicted during one of his very first sojourns in the Moroccan city of Rabat. The Arabic figure covers the paper almost entirely: he is represented sitting on the ground, holding a cane in his left hand, and dressed in the typical eastern customs. The rapid and vibrating mark leads back to the artist’s mittel-european origins, whereas the tones’ chromatography reminds the classical African warm colours.
