F. Luis Mora (1874-1940)

Portrait of Jo Mora, circa 1900

oil on canvas, 45 1/2" x 32"
In period frame with finished corners

Condition:  Excellent

 

F. Luis Mora painted many portraits of his brother, Jo (Joseph Jacinto Mora 1876-1947). They were close as brothers. Before Jo went West they spent much time together. This portrait shows Jo as an Outdoorsman, which was how he spent his childhood and young adult years in New Jersey and Massachusetts.  Jo appears to be in his early 20s, dating the painting circa 1900. The background is apparently a barn. There are hooks for saddles and there are leather accoutrements hanging on the wall, such as a leather bag. This portrait is not signed, like many other portraits of Jo produced by his brother Luis.
