MORE INFORMATION:


Artist Ed Moses (b. 1926) incorporates his mother's maiden name into his signatures, inscribing "Y Branco" and "Moses y Branco" on his works interchangeably. Olivia Branco raised Moses in Long Beach, California, while his father lived in Hawaii. Moses cites Pablo Picasso as inspiration for these signature variations. The Spanish artist signed works "Pablo Ruiz y Picasso" until around 1900. By adopting Picasso's style and using his mother's name in his signature, Moses pays homage to his maternal parentage.
