In addition to portraits, Howard J. Morgan also paints landscapes, religious pictures and murals — but his renown will ultimately rest in his conversation pictures which are often profoundly disturbing and tantalizingly indecipherable; demanding but with an underlying humour. He is often compared to Sargent, but a truer comparison would lie with Annibale Carracci, whose stylistic freedom of movement and impasto technique captured the imagination of post Renaissance Roman patrons.
In 1990, the Richmond Gallery devoted an opening night to just one painting: ‘La Soirée du Comte Frederique de la Chasseur’ . Numerous other exhibitions have been held at galleries including Anthony Mould, Claridges, Agnew’s, Cadogan Contemporary Watercolours and The Eaton Gallery.
