Edward Morgan (1933-2009) - Signed 20th Century Oil, The Aviary

£178.00

Description

An impressive oil painting on canvas by British artist Edward Morgan (B.1933). The scene depicts an busy aviary, a number of figures looking, in fascination towards the exotic birds perched at the centre of the composition. The interesting contrast between the grey tones of the setting, the vibrant birds and clothing to the figures gives the scene a modern, almost photographic feel. Morgan was known to experiment with a range of artistic methods and this piece is a clear expression of his pursuit of pure experimental creativity. Signed. On canvas on stretchers.

Condition

68.5 x 56cm (27" x 22")

Artist Biography

Albert Edward Joseph Morgan (1933-2009) was a painter, born in Wolverhampton, West Midlands. Working as a commercial artist, he designed advertisement materials for the confectionery company, Cadbury. He also produced many advertisements for local papers and gained much success as a lapel badge designer. However Morgan’s passion for fine art remained a constant and he began to develop a unique style he named ‘roundism’. Morgan based his ethos around the idea that nature is entirely based around the circle and rounded shape, stating; ‘it is man that has invented the straight line’.

Morgan’s artwork is both optimistic and celebratory in style, this is evident in his attitude towards art making; ‘For many years I painted in a realistic manner before creating this style... [it] gives me great contentment of mind. Painting has become an adventure, and for me each picture has a great meaning'. Morgan exhibited his work at the Royal Academy, the Laing Art Gallery, and the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists.
