Luis de Morales is one of the defining painters of sixteenth century Spain. Indeed, despite the conspicuous difference in artistic ambition and stature, he is no less important for an understanding of Spanish art in the age of the Counter-Reformation than El Greco, who strove to convey the same intense spirituality, albeit with strikingly different results. The exquisite facture and morbid sensibility of Morales’s devotional paintings made them perfect vehicles for meditation, earning him the epithet of ‘El Divino’.
