It is with great sadness that I have to announce the passing of Leslie Morgan on 24 March 2017, in Melbourne. Leslie’s painting was his passion, and his work has very recently been acknowledged as an important contribution to late 20th century and early 21st century English and Australian art. He will be very much missed as a much loved son, brother, father, partner and friend. However, it is our hope that his spirit and commitment to all forms of justice will live on through his personal and artistic legacy, which is enormous.
For further information and contact regarding his work and forthcoming exhibitions, please email Lynda Chapple: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Tate Modern in London has acquired The Thorn in the Crown (1984), Study for Soccer Pitch Invasion (1983) and Study for Shooting (1983).
The Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art has acquired The entry of Christ into Brisbane (2005) and With the Boss (2003).
