Alastair Morton (British 1910-1963)

Morton met many contemporary artists through working at his family's textile business. He began to paint in 1936 and continued until 1962, exhibiting from 1939. Between 1937-8 he adapted designs of painters and sculptors to fabrics and from 1939 until1945 studied handloom weaving under Ethel Mairet. He launched 'Constructivist fabrics' at Edinburgh Weavers' New Bond Street showroom.
