It was in this context that the Jardin Majorelle finalized a long anticipated project and opened its Berber Museum. Housed in a painting studio designed by Paul Sinoir in 1931 for Jacques Majorelle, it presents Pierre Bergé and Yves Saint Laurent’s personal collection to the public.
“Since my arrival in Marrakech in 1966, I have not ceased to be fascinated with Berber art and culture. Over the years, I have collected and admired this art which extends over many countries at a time. The Berbers have always been rightly proud of their culture. They have not ceased to reclaim their identity in spite of the vicissitudes they have faced. In Marrakech, in Berber country, in the Jardin Majorelle created by an artist who painted so many scenes of Berber men and women, the idea of this museum occurred to us quite naturally.“ Pierre Bergé

The Imazighen (singular Amazigh), or Berbers, are among the original peoples of North Africa. Their myths, legends and history span 9,000 years, and can be traced to the Proto-Mediterraneans. They have achieved unity by maintaining their unique language and culture which are, like their land, both African and Mediterranean.
