About this title

Synopsis:

Few contemporary art books have met with so
much popular acclaim as the first edition of
Michael Morgan RI. In less than a year the book
was sold out and the clamour for a new edition
was universal. This presented an opportunity to
produce a new and bigger book, providing a
further valuable insight into the evolving work of
this exciting artist.While retaining a substantial
part of the original, this edition includes over
thirty new paintings, illustrating the direction of
the artist's most recent work.
In total over 120 paintings are included, along
with pages from the artist's sketchbooks, musing
from critics and the artist's own comments on his
work and inspirations. For all those who have
purchased a painting by the artist, or those who
desire to own one, this book will bring much
pleasure and a greater understanding of the artist
and his work.
The foreword provides background information
on the artist, setting his work in context and
briefly examining the influences and processes
behind the making of his paintings. But text gives
way to visual content for as the artist himself has
said `I believe the reader prefers to see what the
artist has produced, rather than to be told about
how such products were made.'
Here then is an important look at Michael
Morgan's adventurous contribution to the development
of watercolour painting and a sumptuous
reminder of his unique skills.

About the Author:

Michael Morgan is a member of the
prestigious Royal Institute of Painters
inWatercolours and a founding Academician
of the SouthWest Academy of
Fine and Applied Arts. He holds the
Royal Institute's Medal for his outstanding
work and was additionally awarded
their Kingsmead Publications/Rowland
Hilder Landscape prize in 2001.
Michael's innovative and much soughtafter
paintings have illustrated or been
featured in numerous publications.
He has based his approach to picture
making on Goethe's simple advice that
the art of painting is to see beyond the
everyday familiar vision of things. This
he has done with astonishing success.
Michael shows annually at the RI in
London and at the SouthWest Academy
in Exeter. He is represented by
Marine House at Beer. His work is in
private collections internationally.
