Superb letter about his work and his participation in the colonial exhibition. My dear friend, thank you for your letter, I see with pleasure that you improve. My uncle told me that you were not brilliant and that you were suffering. But you tell me to go much better.
I think that will continue and you will not feel anything of this jostling. Me too on my side, I have difficulties to get a location at the exp.Colonial, and Morocco lets me down. I admit that I expected more eagerness after the propaganda I gave them. But we are in a democracy. And it may be about privileges.
So I will probably have to settle for a few meters of chair rails for everyone. I have resumed here my habits and my work in the exquisite atmosphere of the summer days which are your winter and I do not regret anything I assure you of what I left behind me. I do not have any more news from anyone.All the people who promised to take care of me in my absence let me down. Also, I face this cowardice which reduces to zero my last efforts, since it is already weakened, by a soft philosophy. Fortunately you, you are a faithful. As well we are bound by so many things, memories and many common ideas. Jacques Majorelle participated, in 1931, in the international colonial exhibition of vincennes: the newspaper the Moroccan lookout, he had ordered a large decorative composition (the alamattes) for the inauguration of his stand. Between 1910 and 1914, the young painter made three trips to Egypt from the Nile Delta to Upper Egypt. During this winter of 1913, he made a trip on the nile to louxor and karnak, from where he will bring back numerous panels representing the shores of the nile and the crossed villages, first fruits of his fascination for the east which will lead him to his definitive installation in marrakech in 1919. He obtained the medal of honor of the colonial exhibition in 1931.
