About the Artist

Harry Morley (1881-1943) was born in Leicester and educated at the Alderman Newton School, Leicester and at the Leicester School of Art (Department of Architecture). He entered the architectural practice of Professor Beresford Pite in 1901. In 1905 he visited Italy, having won travelling scholarships from both the Royal Institute of British Architects and the Royal College of Art. As a result he decided to give up architecture for painting. He spent the following year in Paris studying at Julien’s atelier and under other masters. He was elected a Member of the Royal Watercolour Society (in 1927), a Member of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers (1929), an Associate of the Royal Academy of Arts (1936), a Member of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters (1936), and a Master of the Art Workers’ Guild (1936).
