Luis de Morales
(Spanish, 1520 - 1586)

Born circa 1509/1520 in Badajoz, near the border with Portugal. He had a distinctive style that was very different from the Court painters at the time. He concentrated on relatively small devotional images that had an intense spirituality. The piety of his work has earned him the name 'El Divino'. His style derived to some extent from Netherlandish art but the misty aspect of his modelling is more in tune with Florentine art and especially that of Leonardo da Vinci.
