George Morland. .

George Morland (1763-1804), English painter of animals and rustic scenes, was born in London on the 26th of June 1763.
His grandfather, George H. Morland, was a subject painter, three of whose popular pictures were engraved by Watson and Dawe in 1769. The son, H. R. Morland, father of George, was also an artist and engraver, and picture restorer, at one time a rich man, but later in reduced circumstances. His pictures of Jaundry-maids especially were very popular in their time, and were reproduced in mezzotint. They represented ladies of some importance who desired to be painted, according to the fashion of the day, engaged in domestic work. Morland's mother was a Frenchwoman, who possessed a small independent property of her own; she is believed to have been the Maria Morland who exhibited twice at the Royal Academy in 1785 and 1786, although some writers have stated that Maria Morland was not the mother, but one of the sisters of George Morland. Morland displayed his artistic genius early , he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the age of ten. Morland was a hard working painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting many works in a day.
