Treatment Detail

David Morris

David was born in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire and studied painting and printmaking at Harrogate School of Art, before continuing his studies in painting and sculpture at The Slade School, London, 1959-1961. His tutor was Keith Vaughan.

He worked as an art teacher for many years before retiring to concentrate on his own work as a painter and printmaker.  Very sadly, David died July, 2018.

David’s work follows in the tradition of English landscape art and is firmly rooted in observation. The North Yorkshire landscape and coast provided much of the subject matter, where David favoured less well known places such as Port Mulgrave and Skinningrove.  Later in his career, the industrial landscape of Teesside also proved fertile ground.

David exhibited widely in the UK, including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.  In 2017 his work was selected for both the Harrogate Open, Mercer Gallery, and the New Lights Prize Exhibition.  His work was also purchased by the House of Lords for inclusion in their Works of Art Collection in 2012.
