George L. K. Morris
American, 1905 - 1975
George L.K. Morris was an American visual artist who was born in 1905 in Manhattan, New York. He had several gallery and museum exhibitions, including at the Hirschl & Adler Modern and at the Martha Parrish & James Reinish, Inc. There have been many articles about George L.K. Morris, including 'Art Review; Cubists Living in Luxury, Not Bohemian Garrets' written by Grace Glueck for New York Times in 2003.
Although Morris exhibited frequently during the 1930s and 1940s, his paintings and sculpture received the greatest recognition after World War II. He remained a dedicated practitioner of his own form of Cubism, even as colleagues and friends turned to expressionism in the postwar era. From 1937 through 1943, Morris served as editor, art critic, and patron of the relaunched radical literary magazine Partisan Review, where he advocated for abstract art. After 1947, he began writing less and focused primarily on painting and sculpture. He was also a founding member of the American Abstract Artists, serving as president of the group in the 1940s. The artist died in 1975.
