Harry Morley

Born: 1881, UK, England, Leicester   Died: 1943, London

Painter, printmaker and illustrator. Studied architecture at Leicester, late 1890s, and at the Royal College of Art, 1900-c1902. He visited Italy, 1905 and 1911-12, and Paris, 1908, experiences which turned him away from architecture and towards painting. He again regularly visited Italy during the 1920s. Inspired by Italianate themes, including Roman mythology, he painted in oils, tempera and watercolour and exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy. He illustrated E.V. Lucas's 'A Wanderer in Florence', Methuen, 1928, and Edward Hutton's 'Cities of Sicily', Methuen, 1926. In 1928 he took up line engraving producing a number of detailed studies of classical subjects
