George Morland was a British painter and practitioner of the animalier style. Specializing in charming depictions of rural landscapes, among his best-known works is the painting Inside of Stable (c. 1791) featuring a quiet scene of farm laborers and their horses bathed in yellow light. Born on June 26, 1763 in London, England, the artist’s early life was tumultuous, with controversial accounts of his father imprisoning his son to produce forgeries of Dutch and Flemish paintings for his profit, only to be exploited further by an art dealer when he escaped his father’s home. Eventually achieving artistic autonomy, Morland's artistic career was characterized by his prolific creation of landscape and animal paintings of English rural life, executed with attention to detail in a naturalist style representative of English painting at the time. He enjoyed significant success in his later life, and was well known in London for his debaucherous parties and wild lifestyle. His career was cut short by his arrest for debt and the subsequent loss of use of his left hand due to palsy, which he contracted in prison. Despite this, he painted right up until his death in London, England on October 27, 1804 at the young age of 41.
