John Morgana (1822– 1885) was a successful English genre artist.
Born in Pentonville London, Morgan studied at the School of Design, London and also trained in Paris under Thomas Couture (1815-1879). Whilst living in Aylesbury in 1861, he found fame with his paintings 'Gentlemen of the Jury' and 'The Country Auction'. A member of the Society of British Artists (SBA), his work was influenced by Thomas Webster and William Powell Frith.
Morgan died in Hastings in 1885. His son Frederick Morgan was an equally popular artist, most noted for 'His Turn Next', famously used by the Pears Soap advertising campaign.
