Jorge Morel (born May 9, 1931), classical guitarist and composer from Argentina. Original, vintage, pen and ink, "on-the-spot" illustration by George 'Georges' Krishizki. The hand drawn illustration has been signed by Morel and additionally signed, dated and titled by Krishizki: "Georges / 1973 / Jorge Morel playing Prelude and Dance Chacarera."

Through his original compositions and arrangements, Jorge Morel has substantially added to the existing repertoire for classical guitar while consistently challenging traditional, technical, and stylistic limitations. His mastery of the technical combined with intimate knowledge of the physical and acoustical characteristics of the instrument have resulted in an innovative approach to the complex task of composing for the classical guitar. His ability to blend his love for the Latin American rhythm textures and sophisticated jazz harmonies permeates his work with a musical imagination that is all his own, attested to by the many artists worldwide who have recorded his works.

Names such as John Williams, The Assad Brothers, Duo Evangelos & Liza, Pepe and Angel Romero, Christopher Parkening, David Russell, David Starobin, Carlos Barbosa-Lima, Ricardo Iznaola, Eliot Fisk, Vladislav Blaha, Krzysztof Pelech, Hilary Field, and The Hanser McClellan Duo, have performed and recorded many of Morel's compositions and arrangements, including Guitar Concertos, Guitar and String Quartets, solos, duets, and Guitar Quartets as well as fine performance of his Suite Del Sur by the Prague Quartet.

George 'Georges' Krishizki (March 22, 1924 – December 20, 2001), Russian-Polish-American illustrator who came to the U.S. in 1949. While he earned acclaim for his renderings of the city’s architectural landmarks, it was his on-the-spot drawings of musicians in performance that attracted an especially appreciative audience. In a 1973 article published in conjunction with two simultaneous exhibitions, Georges explained the genesis of his long-running engagement with the concert hall: “I’ve always enjoyed going to concerts, and one day I decided it would be fun to combine my interests in music and art and make sketches of musicians during performances.”  Indeed, the most remarkable feature of Georges’ oeuvre, apart from the astounding range of performers who gladly expressed their approval and appreciation by signing, is the skill with which the drawings are accomplished.

This original pen and ink illustration, measuring approximately 9 x 12, on heavy-weight sketch paper, is in fine condition with some light overall toning. Its verso is blank and clean.
