Renowned artist Philip Moore dies

Monday, May 14, 2012

Guyana?s most renowned artist, painter and sculptor Philip Alphonso Moore died at age 90.
According to his son, Philip Moore (Jr), his father, the designer behind the 1763 Monument, died quietly in his sleep at around 04:30h Sunday, May 13 at his home at Lancaster on the Corentyne. According to his son, Moore was bedridden and suffered from ailments of the heart and kidneys.
It is said that around 1955, Moore dreamed that a large hand reached down to him from the heavens, and a voice commanded him to begin his career as an artist. This is the reason Moore considered himself to be ?spirit-taught.?
Apart from his paintings and sculpture Moore taught at the Burrowes School of Art and the Princeton University in the USA as a guest professor. Moore returned to Berbice in 2004 after taking ill, but continued to work from home.
Moore sold the bulk of his work to the Department of Culture, which installed his pieces in the National Art Gallery, Castellani House, in Georgetown.
He was the recipient of several awards including the Cacique Crown of Honour.

Moore?s 1763 Monument, nearly 25 feet tall, sits at the Square of the Revolution Georgetown, Guyana
