Henry Robert Morland was taught by his father, the 18th century painter, George Henry Morland and like him became celebrated for his subject pictures and particularly his portraits, the most famous being his 1760 oil painting of King George III. Between 1760 and 1791 he exhibited a total 108 times at Georgian London’s premier venues, the Society of Artists and the Free Society, as well as at the newly formed Royal Academy from 1768.
Today, Henry Morland is best remembered for his striking chiaroscuro paintings of maids and domestic servants, and for being the father of one of the first great early English landscape painters George Morland.
