George Ford Morris
Date: 1873 - 1960
Remarks: A fine American equestrian artist, George Ford Morris was equally talented as a painter, sculptor, illustrator and lithographer. He was mainly self-taught but attended classes at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1888 and later at the Academie Julien in Paris (1925). In the early twentieth century, Morris worked mainly from his Thirty-Third Street studio in New York City. Concentrating almost solely upon the art of the horse, George Ford Morris was a frequent contributing artist to such publications as ¿The American Horseman¿, ¿Breeder¿s Gazette¿, ¿American Field¿, ¿National Horseman¿ and ¿Thoroughbred of California¿. He also illustrated for national publications such as ¿Scribner¿s¿ and ¿Century¿ magazines'.
