Francis Luis Mora (1874-1940) | America's First Hispanic Master



Francis Luis Mora was a Uruguayan-born American🎨 figurativ painter.
Mora worked in watercolor, oils and tempera. He produced drawings in pen and ink, and graphite; and etchings and monotypes.
He is known for his paintings and drawings depicting American life in the early 20th century; Spanish life and society; historical and allegorical subjects; with murals, easel painting and illustrations. He also was a popular art instructor.


Mora is known for his attempts to translate the techniques of the Spanish🎨 Old Masters to a modern American idiom.
Since Mora's initial travels in Spain coincided with the emergence of the Generation of '98, a portion of his oeuvre has been interpreted as an attempt to understand modern Spain and Spanish-U.S. relations in the aftermath of the Spanish-American War.
He painted a portrait of his only daughter, Rosemary, "In Costume" in 1925, showing her as a little Senorita pushing a doll carriage.
Mora also produced a large series of Impressionist paintings with American subjects.
Many pictured life in the Connecticut and New Jersey countryside and picnic scenes.
He loved children, and some of his most notable and published scenes pictured happy youngsters at play.
