Gladys Roldán-de-Moras

Gladys Roldán-de-Moras is often known for her paintings which spotlight Spanish culture, including courageous, gallant Mexican escaramuzas daringly riding horses sidesaddle in a rodeo-style festival, romantic Flamenco señoritas clad in exuberant Andalusian dresses, and old-fashioned, delicate damsels in intimate, exquisite poses.  After living in San Antonio for over 25 years, she finds great inspiration in representing her love of Spanish culture. “I try to paint the beauty around me,” says Gladys of her work, “I am inspired by turn-of-the-century Spanish painters.” 

Her talent has landed her work in many private and public permanent collections at the national and international levels. Gladys’ striking, romantic art has been cited in several publications such as Fine Art Connossiuer, Art of the West, Southwest Art Magazine, American Western Art Collector, Western Art and Architecture, Architectural Digest European Edition, San Antonio Express-News, Western American Literature, Art Business News, El Dictamen de Veracruz, and La Voz Latina, to name a few.
