Daniel Morillo

Biography from Auctionata

Daniel Hernández Morillo, born as the son of a Spanish landowner in Huancavelica in Peru, studied initially in 1870 with the painter Leonardo Barbieri in Lima.  A grant from the Peruvian government in 1873 led him to Rome, where he studied at the Art Academy and with the history painter Lorenzo Vallés.

In the early 1880s, Hernández Morillo went to Paris.  He painted genre scenes, specializing particularly on female nudes and portraits.  His works have been shown in the Paris salons.  In 1901 Hernández Morillo received the medal of the Legion of Honor.  In 1918 he moved back to Peru and founded on behalf of the government, the Escuela Nacional de Buenas Artes in Lima, where he was director until his death in 1932.
