George Morland




The popular and quintessentially British artist George Morland lead a life and career which was as prolific as it was profligate. Despite his great success, his life of excess lead him into dept and he died at the early age of 41, probably as a result of alcoholism.


The highpoint of Morland's career was between 1790 and 1795 when he achieved great fame and popularity as a painter of animals and rural scenes.
