Harry Morley was born in Leicester, England on 5 April 1881 and studied architecture at Leicester School of Art. In 1901 he began training in the London office of the architect Arthur Beresford Pite (1861-1934). He then continued his architectural studies at the Royal College of Art in London. In 1905 [or 1904 - sources differ] he was awarded scholarships from the RCA and the Royal Institute of British Architects which enabled him to attend the Académie Julian in Paris and to travel though Italy and France. Following his return to England, Morley appears to have abandoned thoughts of practising as an architect, and embarked on a career as a painter, illustrator, and (from 1928) engraver. From the early 1900s onwards Morley exhibited extensively, including at Agnew & Sons Gallery, Beaux Arts Gallery, Colnaghi & Co.
