Morrocco - Alberto Morrocco

Alberto Morrocco, flamboyant, talented and versatile, is one of the grand old men of Scottish painting.

Born in Aberdeen in 1917 of Italian parents, Morrocco is one of a group of Italo-Scots who have enlivened Scottish culture this century.

A superb draftsman and a very able and perceptive portrait painter, he is most renowned for his Still-Lifes and his utterly individual and intensely coloured figurative paintings based on Italian themes.  Clowns, beachboys, peasant women and melon sellers inhabit a hauntingly imaginative world pervaded by the warmth of the Mediterranean.

A fascinating in-depth interview with the Artist contains biographical material as well as his views on art. A concise essay giving a broad overview of Morrocco’s development is also included.

This book was originally published to coincide with a major retrospective exhibition which celebrated his 75th Birthday.
