Bob Morgan -These are limited signed and numbered prints only.
Robert F. Morgan is a native Montanan representing the fourth generation of his family in Montana. Bob was born in 1929 and lived in the Stansfield Lake area of the Helena Valley. “I’ve always fooled around with painting or some art form,” Morgan says. When Bob was only 13 years old he got a job at Fligelman’s Department Store in Helena in the advertising/ display department. It was at Fligelman’s that Morgan received his first instruction in design, color and lettering. He continued to refine his talents with a natural aptitude and a keen eye to what he viewed.
Early in 1952, Morgan was hired as an exhibits designer with the then newly house Montana Historical Society. With nothing more than a high school education and a stint in the Montana National Guard, Bob spent 15 years, off and on, as curator of the Montana Historical Society where he designed exhibits and was in charge of art collections and all matters pertaining to the Society’s art functions. In the mid 1970’s, Bob left the Historical Society to pursue a career on his own.
