Original Limited Edition Serigraph by Azoulay. Hand signed, titled and numbered by the artist. Image Size: 18.75" x 23". Certificate of Authenticity is included. Guillaume Azoulay was born in Casablanca, Morocco in 1949.Today he has achieved international recognition as a successful and gifted artist. His unique self-taught style conveys movement, strength, and grace. Since age thirteen, Azoulay's thirst for adventure has taken him to many parts of the world, earning his way by painting and performing as an actor. Azoulay met his wife Charmaine Seal, noted Welsh ballerina, in Israel, and in 1976 they arrived in the United States.
In this short time span, Azoulay has succeeded in becoming one of the best-known and most popular American etchers. In 1983, Azoulay was chosen to create the official Kentucky Derby Festival Poster.He was challenged by the thought of creating image that combined his love of horses with the excitement of the world's greatest horse races. His latest series of etchings capture the spirit and vitality of racing's most important competitions: Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and the Belmont. Included in the artist's numerous achievements are the acceptance of seven of his works in the permanent collection of the Musee Du Louvre (Cabinet Des Dessins). His work is in the private collections of President Ronald Reagan, His Majesty King Hassan II of Morocco, President Fracois Mitterand of France and the late President Sadat of Egypt. Severall works by Azoulay are in the prestigious Nelson Rockefeller Collection. An early critique of Azoulay's talent perhaps says it best, A young man whose varied and prolific work lets us predict a very bright future. Daniel Serrulaz Chief Curator Musee Du Louvre, 1978.
