Harry Morley was a well regarded painter, illustrator and etcher born in Leicester in 1881. Morley studied Architecture at Leicestershire School of Art from 1897, gaining a scholarship to the RCA in 1900 furthering his studies before travels in Italy inspired him to paint. In 1901, he began training in the London office of the architect Arthur Beresford Pite (1861-1934). His work took him to France where he attend the AcadÉmie Julian in Paris before journeying on to Italy. Following his return to England, Morley appears to have abandoned thoughts of practising as an architect and embarked on a career as a painter, illustrator, and (from 1928) engraver. A prolific exhibitor he showed at Agnew's, Beaux Arts Gallery, RBA, Colnaghi's Chenil Gallery, Fine Art Society, Goupil Gallery, ISSPG, New English Art Club, Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, Royal Institute of Oil Painters, 7 & 5 Society, Arthur Tooth & Sons, Walker Art Gallery, MAFA, Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts, Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Hibernian Academy. Morley was also elected to the Art Workers' Guild in 1921 and was Master of that Society in 1936. Colour Magazine reproduced a painting entitled 'Lucina' in the May 1919 edition.
