About this painting

(Click on painting and print examples to show full images)


Majlis Gallery is the FIRST gallery to start in Dubai (and maybe the whole of the UAE for that fact!). and resides in the 'Bastakiya' cultural heritage area of Duba Old Town.


An English lady and her family move to Dubai and lived in the building during the 70's and '80's. Sheikh Maktoum was so impressed by this woman's enthusiasm to start a gallery that it was agreed she could start. Thats how it was in the early days of Dubai!


The lady is still co-owner of the gallery. The gallery also runs art courses and even has visiting English artists to exhibit and to give courses. It is a thriving art and social hub of which my wife and I have enjoyed many times.


I painted this scene in soft pastel and just as you come in to the entrance to the gallery.




The Original is part of my private collection and not for sale.
