Artist of the moment………..George L.K. Morris

 

 

George Lovett Kingsland Morris was an American abstract whose works emphasized hard edges shapes and vivid color. George Morris was born in Brooklyn, New York in the year 1905.

The family of Morris had a great deal of money and the artist attended the best schools graduating from Yale University.

Morris studied the Art Student’s League of New York City. He was first a traditional artist and then came to the more modern movements of abstraction and cubism after moving to Paris and studying with such luminaries as Fernand Leger.

The artist worked as a painter and sculptor.

Morris was a founding member and president of the American Abstract Artists Group.

George Morris and another passenger were killed in an auto accident that happened in 1975. His wife was also in the accident and was severely injured.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

Morris is included in the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

What I enjoy most about this artist was his ideas about abstract art. Morris believed that the shapes used as a basis for abstract could be found anywhere and could be unusual shapes such as a leak of a pipe and the pattern of the dripping water.
