George Ford Morris was born in St. Joseph, Mo., and was largely self-taught as a painter sculptor, illustrator and lithographer. However, he had studied at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1888 and at the Julina Academy in Paris in 1925. For a while, around 1907, he had a studio in New York on Thirty-third Street near the old Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.
Horse Study was commissioned by the Associated American Artists of New York in 1945. Besides Horse Study , Morris published at least two other original lithographs with the A.A.A. during the 1940's decade.
Morris died in Arcadia, California in 1960, after painting horses for more than seventy years.
