George Morland (1763-1804)

Born in London, the artist was able to study at the Royal Academy of Arts at Somerset House already at an early age. His first oil painting was shown at the exhibition of the Royal Academy of Arts in 1781. From 1777-84 Morland was apprentice and coworker of his father, who was a famous genre painter. In 1784/85 he traveled to France, where he predominately painted portraits. After his return to London in 1786, he married. The stillbirth of his only child a short time later was possibly the cause of his sentimental children's pictures. Morland’s extensive ouevre includes over 4000 paintings; 1796-1804 almost 900 pictures and over 1000 drawings were created. Some of these works are represented in various museums, including the Art Institute in Chicago, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Hermitage in St. Petersburg and the Louvre in Paris.
