Painting Sizes and the ues of Initials to sign

I am looking for some particular information about this artist and the size of some of his smaller paintings. I have found references to paintings as small as 7 by 5 inches and even smaller for a self portrait with ivory 3 by 2 inches.

Would like to know if anyone has information as to whether this artist ever painted Christmas card size paintings that may have been or not been reproduced as Christmas cards?

Secondly if Mr. Mora ever signed works with just his initials: F. M.?.

Any information would be most helpful.

Kachina prints
Hi Cleo,
I collect Jo Mora and am very familiar with the Kachina prints you refer to on AskArt. There are only eight of the 39 reproduced. You mentioned 10, so I think you have a duplication. I have sold these sets of eight with all the papers, portfolios, description cards, authenticity papers attached for upwards of 3600. in mint condition.

I would like to know how much my 1979 collection of
Jo Mora's watercolor collection of Hopi kachina and ceremonial figures are worth. (10 prints) every one is giving me different prices,for their own benefits. Your sincere
help would be greatly appreciated.

I have recently come across a little booklet of extracts from Luis' letters which May Mora autographed and sent out at Christmas, 1940. Was this some sort of memorial Christmas card??? Does anyone know what this is all about? Thanks from Vermont! RMC

I found a pastel sketch in Jackson, California by F. Luis Mora
I found a sketch of a lovely dark-haired woman wearing a black ribbon and locket and a paisley shawl of yellow, red green and blue. I felt it was an original when I spotted it in a thrift store, and I still think it is. It a pastel, about 5" by 7". There is a black painted border on it. The colors are vibrant and the signature is bold and clear. I think I have something very interesting here and would like more information. Sincerely, Lacey Bartich

F. Luis Mora Web Site
Hello. I was delighted to learn of your project. I instinctively believe that in the annals of American artists, he ranks as a 'natural' with Sargent, Cassat and few others I could name. I have TWO of his works: a mid -size watercolor "Sun Splash", and a small but vibrant oil "Gypsy Encampment". The watercolor was bought when Park Bernet was still in business (c.1972)and sold with the "Sunsplash" name, and the latter at Sotheby's New York, about 20 years ago. I would very happy to send a photograph of each, after trying to get the best representation. Just tell me where, and I will start 'shooting'. If either of these names suggests a date or place, concerning the origin of my pictures, it would be invaluable to know that. His work has given me MUCH pleasure and is admired by everyone who visits me. Rex

F. Luis Mora estate

F. Luis Mora web site
We are friends of F. Luis Mora's family. We are working with his estate to develop a website. It will feature this brilliant American artist with Hispanic heritage. It is in the beginning stages of construction. We would appreciate jpegs of paintings, prints or watercolors to display on the site. We are also available to answer questions, whether personal queries about Mora's life and legacy, or about specific artworks. We are able to date his works, and we can tell you where they were painted. Thank you, and best wishes.
