Mora Alphonse

Alphonse Mora was a Belgian artist born in Antwerp in 1891 and died in Antwerp in 1977. He was a painter, xylographer and lithographer. Initially he also performed as a comedian and humorist under the pseudonym Fono A Roma. He was educated at the Academy and at the Higher Institute in Antwerp under the direction of J. De Vriendt, Is. Opsomer, Gilsoul, Hens and Pellens. As a painter he realized, among other things, cityscapes, landscapes, rural scenes, travel impressions from the Rhine region, figures, flowers and still lifes. As a woodcarver he made images of horses, shells, nudes and landscapes. From the press: 'In his cityscapes and city impressions we feel the pulse of city life, which he reproduces faithfully, accurately, in pleasantly stylized pages, which perhaps do not want to be more than spicy, colorful images from the big city film. In the same generous, tender note he paints the silhouette, I would almost say he cuts the silhouette of all kinds of wretches and rooters, because Mora (need to say?) is and remains a great friend of the disinherited.' (J. Crick) he exhibited in the Hall Oor in Antwerp in 1931, in the gallery De Gouden Ram in Antwerp in 1962. He is mentioned in CRICK, BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (piron)
