In Morocco, Delacroix left to paint and draw “from nature”, to experience lights, colors, shapes, horses and riders, faces and bodies. From Morocco, Gérard Rondeau brings back impressionist images, night visions, passers-by who have become forms or sculptures that he meets in the streets. Delacroix’s eye quickly remembered, to guide his hand, a scene he had just seen. Rondeau’s apparatus records, on his order and in the framing he has determined, the organization of forms as they move in front of him. What these two practices have in common remains intimately linked to the very nature of their trip, to their way of not traveling just to visit, but to see.
