Alberto Morrocco

RSA, RSW Born: 1917

Born in Aberdeen in 1917, he studied at Gray's School of Art from 1932-38 and in France, Italy and Switzerland. He is famous for his landscapes in Scotland and abroad, still life, figure painting and interiors but perhaps his best known works are his beach scenes and views of Venice. Morrocco was a decorative artist of great felicity, using a rich and varied palette. He was also influential as a teacher, working part-time at Gray's and becoming head of painting at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in 1950.

Alberto Morrocco was the subject of a centenary exhibition in August 2017.
