Phyllis May Morgans RGI (1911-2001) - Fine Mid 20th Century Oil, Lake District

Item Sold


A charming oil painting by the well listed artist Phyllis May Morgan, depicting cottages and trees by a lake in the Lake District. The length of this painting gives a panoramic view of the lake landscape, with the cottages among a line of trees in the foreground, and mountains stretching across in the background. The areas of impasto and loose brushstrokes give this painting a textured effect. It has been signed to the lower right corner, and is well presented in a wooden and gilt frame. Phyllis May Morgans (1911-2001) was a member of the Royal Glasgow Institute and lived in Walberswick. Signed. On canvas on stretchers.


Very slight undulation to canvas in the lower right corner, but otherwise this painting is in excellent condition. Inspection under UV light reveals no restoration. There is very minor scuffing to the four corners of the frame.


49.2 x 100cm (19.4" x 39.4")
Framed Size: 59.5 x 111cm (23.4" x 43.7")

Artist Biography

MORGANS Phyllis May 1911-2001. Painter nee Phyllis May Murdock in Enfield, Middlesex. After 1935 she worked under the name of Morgans. Phyllis studied at St. Martin's School of Art where her principal subject was fashion design but later turned to painting, initially portraiture and illustration. As an exhibitor she showed at the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts and was made an Honorary Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers. Phyllis painted mainly in oils and sold many of her paintings at Bourton-on-the-Water in the Cotswolds. She exhibited at the Royal Society of Marine Artists and the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and held a considerable number of solo shows. Many of her works have been reproduced, several in the 'Laing' calendars. She lived and worked at The Green, Walberswick, Suffolk from 1971 and departed for Spain in 1989 but she died at Ipswich in 2001. Her work is well represented in both private and public collections, including that of the Hitchin Museum and Art Gallery and Norris Museum, St. Ives, Cambridgeshire and the Library of Congress, Washington D.C. Her daughter Helen M. Morgans (b. 1937) is a Colchester based artist.
