is one of the greatest Tunisian painters
of the 20th century. He expressed his multi-faceted talent through painting, tapestry, sculpture, ceramics… but mostly through simple gouache drawings where characters seem to be drawn up into childish and jubilant imaginations.
The Kheireddine Palace
hosts a retrospective
of Gorgi’s work. The exhibition evokes his drawing work, his painter friends of the School of Tunis
– a group of artists created in 1949 – and his works for official orders. Contributions of Tunisian contemporary artists complement this tribute to Gorgi who died in 2008.
