EDWARD MORAN

American, 1829-1901

Edward Moran

BIOGRAPHY
'Moran left England for America at a very early age, and began his art studies in Philadelphia. He later returned to England to work for several years at the Royal Academy school, and also lived in Paris. From 1877 he lived in New York, and quickly occupied an important place there among the painters. He painted all genres but was especially a painter of seascapes, races, battles and shipwrecks.' (Benezit, Dictionary of Artists, Gründ, 2006)

"At the time of his death in 1901," writes Paul Schweizer in an essay on the artist, "Edward Moran was eulogized as one of the most prominent marine painters of his generation.  Hugh W. Coleman noted that: 'as a painter of the sea in its many moods and phases, Edward Moran, it is commonly admitted, had no superior in America.'  Shortly thereafter the New York lawyer Theodore E. Sutro claimed: 'no artist in this country... has ever painted such water and it was not many years after his first successes in Philadelphia that his fame spread throughout the United States, and he was easily recognized as its finest marine painter'" (Paul D. Schweizer, Edward Moran: American Marine and Landscape Painter, exhibition catalogue, The Delaware Art Museum, Delaware, 1979, p. 9).
