Marrakesh, a collection of 30 paintings in which Leslie Gerry attempts to capture and record the essence of the ‘red’ city on the edge of the Sahara Desert, after a trip of discovery in October 2019. The text is from In Morocco by Edith Wharton, published in 1920. One of the major figures in American literary history, she gives a colourful and textured travel memoir, exploring the culture, history and beauty of a Morocco of old.
