Hans Gustaf Ivar Morsing was born to an artistic family in Ängelholm, Sweden but grew up in Stockholm. He initially studied art at the summer schools held by Swedish designer and artist Edvin Ollers but at the outbreak of the Second War he was conscripted. Sweden’s developing neutrality allowed him to attend Gösta and Irma Bergh's Technical School of Advertising (which later became Berghs School) between 1940 and 1941 followed by a year with the Modernist painter Isaac Grünewald at the late Professor at the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts. After hostilities he toured Europe painting and exhibiting. Examples of Morsing's works are held in the collections of Moderna Museet, Stockholm and museums in Kalmar and Jönköpings.
