GUILLAUME  AZOULAY (1949 -     )

Guillaume Azoulay was born in Casablanca, Morocco in 1949, and by age thirteen was sketching and
selling his drawings on the street and at fairs. He has held major exhibits in Rome, Copenhagen, Monte
Carlo, Reno, Paris, TelAviv and many other cities. In 1978 two of his works were accepted into the
permanent collection of the Louvre Museum in Paris. Their chief curator has said of Azoulay. "He is an
artist whose varied works let us predict a very bright future".He has achieved international recognition
as a successful and truly gifted artist. His unique self-taught style conveys strong illusions of fluid
motion. His subjects appear to be caught in a vital moment of life. He does not use models, preferring
to rely on his imagination.His works are found in the collections of former President Ronald Reagan,
Francois Mitterand, the late Anwar Sadat, King Hassan II of Morocco, Prince Rainier and Prince Karim
Aga Khan. He is noted for his generosity and has made countless contributions of art to many
worthwhile charitable organizations. He is extremely proud of his Jewish tradition and Sephardic
heritage and has expressed his feeling of pride through many of his works of art. Guillaume Azoulay
was presented with the Yehuda Halevi Award on February 12, 1986.One of his most notable
accomplishments is the fact that Azoulay is the youngest artist to be accepted in the permanent
archives of the Musee du Louvre, in Paris.
