GEORGE MORRISON (Sep 30, 1919 - Apr 17, 2000) was an American painter and Minnesota Chippewa born on the Grand Portage Reservation in northern Minnesota. Morrison was part of the Abstract Expressionist movement in the 1950s and is now regarded as the father of Native Modernism.
My underlying theme is landscape, both its structural and organic elements. I am fascinated by the mystery of the horizon, the poetry of rocks, the phenomenon of sky and water. These responses, which spring from a combination of many things ... become part of the inner self."
