Luis de Morales

(b ?Badajoz, c. 1520; d Badajoz, ?1586).

Spanish painter. The origins of his highly individual style are complex. His meticulous technique and the prominent echoes of the style and forms of Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael indicate the formative influence of Italianizing Flemish painters. This accords with Palomino’s statement that Morales was trained in Seville by the Flemish Mannerist painter Peeter de Kempeneer (known in Spain as Pedro de Campana), who is recorded in Spain from 1537. It has been suggested that Morales visited Italy c. 1540, but this seems most unlikely. His contact with Portuguese painting, particularly that of Frei Carlos and the Evoran school, was important, and his knowledge of German and Flemish prints contributed to his repertory of forms.
