Morales, Luis de


(also known as Morales el Divino). Born circa 1510 in Badajoz; died there May 9, 1586. Spanish painter.

Morales was influenced by the Flemish and mannerist schools of painting. His works (for example, Madonna and Child, c. 1570, Prado Museum, Madrid) are marked by their enamel-like texture and cold colors. The sorrowful, nearly ecstatic spirituality of his portrayals reflects the intellectual milieu of the Counter-Reformation.
