Philip Richard Morris (British, 1836-1902)

Philip Richard Morris was an English painter of genre and maritime scenes, Holman Hunt-influenced religious paintings and portraits. Taken to London aged 14 by his iron-founder father to train for the family trade, Philip became increasingly interested in art and, with William Holman Hunt winning round his father, began taking evening drawing classes in the British Museum and (from 1855) in the Royal Academy Schools. At the latter, he used the travelling studentship he won for his The Good Samaritan to fund a journey to Italy and France, remaining there until 1864.He was elected an associate of the Royal Academy in 1877 (despite his talents and health already being on the wane), though he resigned it in 1900. His daughter Florence married the archaeologist Alexander Keiller and his eldest daughter, Gladys Morris (1879–1946), married the noted British sportsman, journalist and editor, Bertram Fletcher Robinson.
