Biography from Fred R. Kline Gallery, Inc.:
LUIS DE MORALES.

Spanish painter, born 1520 and died 1586 in Badajoz, Spain.  His highly individualistic style and precise technique suggest the formative influence of Italian and Flemish painters.  At some point after 1537, it is likely Morales studied in Seville with the Flemish Mannerist painter Peeter de Kempeneer (known in Spain as Pedro de Campana.  Morales was also in contact with Portugese painting, particularly that of Frei Carlos and the Evoran school; his work also shows an awareness of German and Flemish prints.

Morales is known in Spain as "El Divino", explained by the exclusive religious character of his body of work which succeeded in giving brilliant expression to the impassioned spirituality of Spanish society, an achievement only equalled by El Greco, his younger contemporary in Toledo.  The restricted iconographic range of his paintings concentrates on the imagery of the Passion, specifically the devotional images of the "Ecce Homo" and the "Pieta", reflecting the popular subjects of contemporary Spanish mystics: St. Peter of Alcantara (1499-1562), Fray Luis de Granada (1504-88), and Juan de Avila (1500-69).
