As we gear up for the fantastic Marrakech Biennale (February 26-March 31) the luxury hotel La Mamounia is holding a special exhibition as part of the celebrations.

Called Meetings in Marrakech the show will run from the 20th of February until the 3rd of March and it will highlight paintings by Hassan el Glaoui and Winston Churchill.

Churchill famously said that Marrakech was ‘one of the loveliest spots in the world’ a statement which, of course, we heartily agree with. The hotel today has the (very) English Churchill Suite, created in the leader’s honour, which is complete with the prime minister’s favourite hat.

Fast-forward to 2014 and this art exhibition promises to highlight both Churchill’s own work and the work of Hassan el Glaoui, who, encouraged by Churchill, became the first Moroccan artist to gain international fame.

The show will display eight paintings by Churchill and 17 by El Glaoui, many of which have never been shown before within Morocco. It will also be the first time the works by both painters have been exhibited together.

The ideal way to see the show – which is taking place in the Le Grand Salon of La Mamounia – is to end with a signature Churchill cocktail in the Churchill bar.
