Additional Information

This is an ink and paper drawing by Alfred Morang, which depicts a hillside village.  This drawing has not previously been displayed.  It was a gift to a close friend and beautifully demonstrates a post impressionist style of drawing, influenced by Van Gogh and Toulouse-Lautrec among others.

Alfred Morang was a writer, poet, violinist, and artist. He was born in Ellsworth, Maine in 1901. Due to his ill health as a child, Morang was not able to attend school, and instead had many tutors who nurtured his love of art.  He moved to Santa Fe, NM in 1937 with his wife, Dorothy Morang, at the suggestion of his doctors after contracting tuberculosis.  Alfred Morang quickly wove himself into Santa Fe’s rich art community as a teacher, and mentor to many.  He was a member of the Transcendental Painting Group, which was founded by Raymond Johnson, Emil Bistram, and William Lumpkins.  He was particularly inspired by the Post-Impressionist artists of Europe in the last 1800’s, and explored color theory and abstract, and non-objective techniques in his work.
