Lot Essay

In 1904, Brough had been elected an A.R.S.A. and had received his most important portrait commission to date from the Marquess of Linlithgow. At this point in his career he was trying to expand his work away from primarily portrait painting towards more ambitious and adventurous subjects.

Moroccan scene was painted during a trip suggested by his friend and fellow painter George Percy Jacomb Hood. At that time, most of Morocco was considered unsafe and consequently all of his work was done in and around Tangier.
