Claudio Bravo Palace: a unique place
where the painter's soul floats
The painter of Chilean origin Claudio Bravo died of an epileptic seizure on June 4, 2011 in his extraordinary palace, located near Taroudant . Also called Claudio Bravo Palace, this quite exceptional place perpetuates the memory of the hyperrealist painter, highly regarded in the art world. Claudio Bravo had chosen to live and work in Morocco for its exceptional light. He had first set his sights on Tangier, then on Marrakech , before settling definitively in Taroudant .
This great artist stayed in 2003, first part of the year, in the Rwandan palace he had built facing the Atlas. A place chosen, he says, because of the "world record for days without sun, which reaches only 25 days a year".
Mixture of realism, abstraction and classicism
Claudio Bravo shines as an exceptional observer of still and frozen things. However, we are far from the classic still life, as the compositions below testify. " My work is a mixture of realism, abstraction and classicism , explained the Chilean artist. What I try is to go against the current tendencies of art ".
Claudio Bravo found in Morocco the inspiration he was looking for, tireless energy, light, colors, people. Critics agree that he painted the reality and the non-reality of those around him wonderfully. Millimeter, its technical mastery is exceptional. The portrait of the young woman in the turban below is a good reminder of how much he internalized Velasquez at the Prado or the Flemish masters. The restrained sensuality of the football players he painted was another facet of Claudio Bravo's extraordinarily eclectic palette.

The influence of nature and religion
There was a time talk of the opening, at his home in Taroudant, of a fine arts school supposed to accommodate 200 students, but its disappearance prevented this beautiful project from seeing the light of day. Claudio Bravo is in any case inspired by the nature that surrounds him, as his landscapes of the Atlas show.
Much has been said that the Muslim religion influenced his formal and chromatic research. He thus produced a series of men in prayer and the cemetery below confirms this attraction. Nonetheless, its Christian culture is expressed just as powerfully. His "Madonna" is rich in symbolism. The background of the landscape is none other than that of the kasbahs of southern Morocco. Superb! We can make it his wallpaper ...
