This exuberant painting by Andre Elbaz uses his characteristic gestural brushstrokes and distortion of image. The subject of the harlequin was a favourite motif for Picasso who may have influenced Elbaz. Andre Elbaz was born into a painter and filmmaker Jewish family in Morocco. Elbaz studied art and theatre in Rabat and Paris from 1950 to 1961. His first exhibition, which was very successful took place in Casablanca in 1961 and earned him an appointment as Professor at the Beaux-Arts school in Casablanca. Years later in 1976, he exhibited his paintings at the Tel-Aviv Museum. In parallel to his career as a painter, Elbaz is also known as a filmmaker. He produced several short films in France, Canada and the United States. He combined his two passions into a new approach in art-therapy, which he developed with his wife who was a psychiatrist. He has exhibited around the world including in Europe, United States, Canada, Japan, Morocco and Israel. Drawings related to the Holocaust were shown in an exhibition at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. A retrospective exhibition of his life's achievements was held in 1990 at the George Pompidou Centre in Paris. The provenance of this painting is not certain but it seems likely that it was offered by the Zwemmer Gallery in London - Elbaz exhibition 1964.
