This biography from the Archives of AskART:
One of the earliest African-American students at the Pennsylvania Academy, Lenwood Morris was there in 1913, possibly longer, and did portrait and figure painting.  A watercolor, Woman With Parasol, by him is in the Academy's collection.  Howard University has a portrait by him of African-American philosopher, Alain Locke.

Swann auction catalogue, African-American Fine Art, February 6, 2007

Biography from Swann Galleries:
A student at the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts with other African-American artists such as Laura Wheeler Waring and Julian Abele in the early 1900s, Lenwood Morris is known by only a handful of works today - including a small gouache and watercolor, Woman with Parasol, 1908, in the Academy's permanent collection.  Along with Richard Brown, Morris also built and decorated parts of the set of the 1916 Philadelphia production of W.E.B. Dubois' historical pageant, Star of Ethiopia.  His best known painting, the 1915-18 portrait of Alain Locke, is in the collection of the Howard University Art Gallery.  Morris later exhibited with the Harmon Foundation in the 1930s.

Locke described him as one of the "Negro Modernists," who, because he died relatively early, was a "swallow before the proper spring" and a "painter of what for that time were unusually advanced styles of landscape and strong, high key portrait studies." Powell p. 71.
