    Carl Morris (1911-1993) was born in Yorba Linda, CA in 1991. He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago as well as in Paris and Vienna. Morris opened the Spokane Art Center, in Spokane, WA, through the Federal Art Project during the Great Depression. He met his wife, sculptor Hilda Grossman when recruiting her as a teacher there. Carl and Hilda moved to Seattle in 1940, where they met and became friends with Mark Tobey, among other Northwest School artists. In 1941, Morris was commissioned to paint mural for the Eugene Post Office, and the Hilda and Carl decided to stay in Oregon, settling in Portland. In was there that they established their careers as figurative artists, then moving towards abstraction.

    Morris’ friendships with the artists of the Northwest School as well as with Mark Rothko in New York, influenced his career in a major way. And while he often visited friends in New York, he chose not to relocate, as the New York art world, and its hyper-commercialized climate, seemed to him a distraction from making his best work. Morris was a deeply committed and productive artist whose large abstract paintings attempted to express the universal beauty he found in nature, evoking a transcendental dialogue for the viewer. Morris quickly gained recognition across the board, from museums on both the East and West coasts, from painter colleagues, and from art critics.

    As well as being exhibited both nationally and internationally, Morris’ work is included in public and private collections worldwide.  Collections include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Corcoran Gallery and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., the San Francisco Art Museum, the Portland Art Museum, and the Seattle Art Museum. In 1993, the Portland Art Museum honored Morris with a fifty-year retrospective.
