Thomas Moran does not have an image.
(Lancashire, England, 1837 - 1926, Santa Barbara, California)
Born 1837, Bolton, Lancs, England; active 1844–71, Philadelphia (with frequent trips to England); 1871–92, western United States and Mexico; 1892–1926, East Hampton, NY, and Santa Barbara, CA; died 1926, Santa Barbara
One of the first artists to visit and document the American frontier, Moran dazzled his East Coast viewers with rich gold and yellow tones that illustrated the majesty of the American landscape. His choice of colors also reflects the influence of his teacher and mentor in England, landscape painter J. M. W. Turner, who is known for working in a similar palette.
