Day 360: Mauriel Morejon

Still life painting has a long and honored history Morejon is one of the more thoughtful landscape
painters. His treatment of opposites, such as light and dark or delicate and massive, sets up a
dynamic interplay that excites the mind more than a simple decorative arrangement would. His
compositions are formal, dignified, yet warmly human. He arranges them with a sensitive but light
hand, so that the painting seems to breathe. He believes that the still life should have a dominant
mood, a certain feeling that makes him want to paint. His Sport is Fishing
Hunt, and travel outdoor most time to recharge his inspirational sources.

  This painting is based on a sad historical story in Alabama 1840. A female slave was taken away from her child.
