Luis de Morales By:Max lubelczyk

Luis de Morales was born in Badajoz, Extremadura, in 1519. De Morales spent most of his life in Badajoz, where he died, but he did study in Evóra, Portugal, or in Seville. De Morales studied at Seville or Evóra, Portugal. De Morales was very religious, and while he was in a declining state of health, he still painted, proving that he was a hard worker. De morales created paintings. He made the Madonna and child, Maria und das Kind mit der Spindel, The Virgin and Child, and The Crucifixion. De Morales' patron was Pedro de Campaña.
You can find The Virgin and Child in The National Gallery, in London.This piece was created between 1565 and 1570.The name of this piece is The Virgin and Child. This is piece is significant, because it shows focus for meditation by painting the Virgin and Child against a dark background that encourages a strong sense of intimacy. The painting is a picture of baby holding on to a woman’s shirt. Since the title of the painting is, The Virgin and Child, I assume that the baby is Jesus, and the woman is Mary. In the image, the baby is looking right into the woman’s eyes, and they seem very close with each other.
Perspectivism is most clearly linked to this piece, because there is depth and perspective used in the painting. An example is the baby is reaching into the woman’s shirt. Another example is the woman’s fingers are three dimensional. I find this piece interesting, because the baby and the woman seem so close to each other, and the black background makes the piece that much gloomier.
