Thomas Moran

A landscape painter who favored the Rocky Mountains, Moran (1837–1926) was an American painter and printmaker of the Hudson River School. This school of painters was best known for hyper real landscapes, which came to define the first well-acknowledged American artistic movement. Moran’s style attempted to capture the feelings of discovery and appreciation for natural beauty, and the wild realism of an unsettled America that was quickly disappearing.
