George Morland has a wonderful history be it both artistically 'hard working' and self obsessed "hard drinking" - do spend the time to click on the link. Morland was born 26 June 1763 in London and passed away in Brighton 29 October 1804, he was an important English painter of animals and rustic scenes. One great picture I have as a high-res version is in the Philidelphia Art Museum - here. It is easily evident that these are both from his hand, the original frames and signatures are also helpful as art history tells us he was heavily copied - although his output was also great in number even in his later life in and out of the poor houses . . .

Titled on the reverse is the Morland signature
A correct Morland signature in deep pencil on the pack panel of the frame, this is prior to removing the tape adhesive. These back panels are both roughly pit sawn panels.
