About

The White Horse by George Morland (1763- 1804) Oil on Canvas. Total size including painting and frame: 81cm x 94cm x 7cm Housed in an ornate contempory heavy gilt frame. Clearly signed and dated: g.morland. 1796. George Morland was born in June 1763. An English painter, mainly of scenes from rural life, the son and pupil of Henry Morland (1716–97) a painter of portraits and fancy pictures who was also a dealer, forger, and restorer. George was a precocious child and a hard worker and produced a huge amount of works, in spite of leading a dissolute life and often being drunk and in hiding from his creditors, or in prison. His name is particularly associated with scenes of middle and lower class rural life, usually drawn more from the tavern and the stable than the cottage and the rural idyll. George Morland is one of England's most well loved and known artists of this era and his works hang in numerous museum collections. In this painting, the moonlight on the horses back gives a magical and ghostly impression. Here, he was truly at his best. His paintings became extremely popular and he was much imitated and forged. He exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy from 1784 to just before he died. Clean and ready to hang.
