George Morland (1762/3-1804)

George Morland was an English painter of rural life including landscapes, farming, hunting and smuggler scenes. Son of portrait painter Henry Robert Morland, he began painting at an early age and by ten was exhibiting at the Royal Academy (38 works between 1773 and 1804). He produced a large body of works, often while in hiding from creditors and/or while drunk using paintings to settle accounts. Very popular in his lifetime, engravings of his paintings were also in high demand enabling the excesses of his lifestyle. Widely held in public collections including: Tate Britain; Victoria & Albert Museum; Laing Art Gallery; The Box, Plymouth; the Fitzwilliam, Birmingham, Glasgow, Nottingham and Sheffield museums.
