Three Birds Serenading the Moon
Beautiful mid-century modern oil painting of three white birds serenading the moon by Carmel artist Francisco “Paco” Ferro (Spanish, 1909-1982). Signed “Ferro” bottom right corner and label on back with artist name and address. Displayed in original rustic white wooden slate frame. Size: 36"H x 24"W. Francisco F. Ferro was born in Granada, Spain and began his painting career at five by daubing big, fat red roses on the walls of his home. As an adult he moved to America and settled in Carmel, California. He was known to his intimates as “Paco” and had a direct and charming style. He was quoted as saying, “I was born to paint. You know a painter is born to paint. You can’t do anything but paint.” Ferro worked in a dilapidated studio above Cannery Row and was very active in the mid-century Carmel art scene and well known for his Picasso inspired style of painting. “I am fascinated by birds. How they drift from one place to another in order to survive. Since the time of Egyptians, they have been symbolic.” Also see my other matching painting “Three Birds Serenading the Moon II” listed on Chairish also.
