About

Squire Morgan studied etching under Sydney Long and exhibited regularly in the 1920s and 30s with the Society of Artists and the Australian Painter-Etchers' Society, with which group these two etchings were exhibited. He served as President twice for the Painter-Etchers' in the 1930s and eventually made over fifty etchings, drypoint and aquatints, printing some himself while others were editioned by Bim Hilder. The majority of Morgan's prints were landscapes, with occasional architecture
or animal subjects.
