Edward Moran

MORAN, Edward, artist, born in Lancashire, England, in 1829. He came to this country in 1844, and was a pupil of James Hamilton, the marine artist, and of Paul Weber, the landscape-painter, in Philadelphia. He went abroad in 1862, studied in the National gallery in London, and, returning to the United States in 1869, settled in New York. In 1877 he removed to Paris, where he still (1888)resides. He is a member of the Pennsylvania academy of fine arts, and since 1873 has been an associate of the National academy. He has devoted himself especially to landscape and marine paintings, and is an intelligent interpreter of nature. Among his best-known paintings are "The Bay of New York," "The Lord Staying the Waters," the " Launch of the LifeBoat," " The Last of the Wreck," "Old Fort Dumpling, Newport," and "In the Narrows."--His brother, Thomas, artist, born in Bolton, Lancashire, England, 12 January, 1837, came to the United States in 1844, was apprenticed to a wood-engraver in Philadelphia, and subsequently became a pupil of James Hamilton. His first picture in oils was an illustration of Shelley's "Alastor" (1860). He went to Europe in 1862, studied and copied the works of Turner in London, and, returning in 1867, studied in Paris and in Italy, and achieved a reputation as an illustrator and landscape-painter. He accompanied the United States exploring expedition to the Yellowstone country in 1871, and in 1873 went on a similar expedition and made sketches for his "Grand Cation of the Yellowstone" and the " Chasm of the Colorado," which were purchased by congress for $10,000 each, and are in the capitol at Washington. He removed from Philadelphia to New York in 1872, where he still resides (1888). He became a National academician in 1884, and is a member of the New York water-color society, of the New York etching club, of the Society of painters and etchers of London, and of the Philadelphia academy of design. In 1886 he was president of the New York art guild. Besides painting in oil and water-color he has illustrated numerous books of travel and history and practised nearly every form of etching, engraving, and lithography. Among his important works are " The Pass of Glencoe"; " The Mountain of the Holy Cross," which he exhibited at the Centennial of 1876, and for which he received a medal and diploma, "A Dream of the Orient"; "Ponce de Leon in Florida";" The Azure Cliff ";" Green River, Wyoming"; " The Open Sea" ; and "A Storm on the Coast of Easthampton," which he exhibited at the National academy of design in 1887.--Thomas's wife, Mary Nimmo, artist, born in Strathaven, Scotland, 16 May, 1842, came to this country in 1852 and became a pupil of Mr. Moran, whom she married in 1863. She is a member of the Society of painters and etchers of London and of the New York etching club. Her earliest work was in oil and water-colors, but since 1879 she has etched fifty-four plates of varied sizes, styles, and subjects, all of which show delicacy of touch and feeling and mastery of the resources of the needle. Her etchings include " A Goose-Pond,"" Twilight," " The Coast of Florida," " Summer at Easthampton," " Under the Oaks," and "A Windmill and Pond."--Thomas's brother, Peter, artist, born in Bolt on, Lancashire, England, in 1842, began the study of art under his brother Thomas in Philadelphia. He went to London in 1863, studied the English masters, and has spent his subsequent professional life in Philadelphia. He became a member of the Artists' fund society of Philadelphia in 1867, and in 1868 of the Pennsylvania academy of design. He has devoted much time and study to etching, and has attained to the first rank in that art. Among his works are "Santa Barbara Mission," " On the Road to Santa FS," "The Challenge," "Wolves on the Buffalo Trail," and "Pueblo of Zia," New Mexico.--Edward's son, Percy, born in Philadelphia, Pc., in 1862, was successful as an artist at an early age by a series of water-color sketches of figure subjects. He has studied under his father, in London, in Philadelphia, in the National academy of design, New York city, and for four years in Paris. He ex-eels in portraying female heads and figures, and his touch is crisp and decided. Among his recent paintings are " Divided Attention," for which he received the first prize at the New York academy of design in 1886; "A Corner of the Studio " ; " The Wood-Cutter's Daughter " ; "The Duet " ; "Afternoon Tea " ; " The Miller's Daughter "; " The Dancing Lesson "; and "A Japanese Fantasy." His exhibitions at the Academy of design include "I am Ready" (1886) and " The Rehearsal for the Ball " (1887).--Another son of Edward, Leon, artist, born in Philadelphia, Pc., in 1863, studied under his father and in England and France. He then settled in New York city, and took high rank among the younger members of his profession. He has exhibited numerous paintings at the National academy, which include "Waylaid" (1885) ; an "Interrupted Conspiracy" (1886); and "An Amateur" (1887). Among his most successful works are "The Duel," "An Idyl," "Eel-Fishing," and "Intercepted Dispatches."
