George Morland
Gypsies Resting in a Forest

Circa 1790

About

An original signed oil on canvas by English artist George Morland (1763-1804), titled "Gypsies Resting in a Forest", c. 1790. Bears original brass plaque with title and artist at center bottom of frame. (Born London, 26 June 1763 [or, according to his own account, 26 May 1762]; Died London, 29 Oct. 1804). 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 precocious and a fluent worker and produced a huge amount of work, in spite of leading a dissolute life and often being drunk, in hiding from his creditors, or in prison. His name is particularly associated with small scenes of middle- and lower-class rural life, usually drawn more from the tavern and the stable than the cottage. The quality of his work is uneven, but at his best he showed a spirited technique and a sure sense of tone. His paintings became extremely popular and he was much imitated and forged; numerous prints were made after his work, some of them by his brother-in-law William Ward.
