Moran, Thomas

Thomas Moran (12 februarie 1837, Bolton, Anglia – 25 august 1926, Santa Barbara, California) a fost "[…] cel mai important pictor peisagist american, si deasemeni pictorul celor mai importante peisaje americane […]". Binecunoscut pentru peisajele panoramice din Vestul american, a mai pictat si peisaje din Long Island, complexele industriale Mexico si America, preivelisti din Venetia, Italia si numeroase peisaje marine.
 In timpul calatoriilor sale lungi, Moran a creat sute de studii de culoare in aer liber, ce au inregistrat reactia sa imediata la un peisaj. Impresionante, aceste acuarele, deseori au servit ca baza pentru picturile in ulei la scara
mare, care i-au adus marele succes.
In timpul carierei sale lungi de mai bine de 60 de ani, a pictat mai mult de 90 de mari picturi si acuarele.
Intre picturile sale importante: "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came"(1859), "Salvador Rosa and the Brigands"(1860), "The Autumnal Woods"(1860), "Children of the Mountain"(1867), "Tower Falls"(1872), "The Grand Canion of Yellowstone"(1872), "Hot Springs of Gardiner’s River"(1872), "Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone"(1872), "Chasm of the Colorado"(1873-1874), "Mountain of the Holy Cross"(1875),  "The Great Blue Spring of the Lower Basin"(1876), "Cliffs of the Upper Colorado River"(1882), "The Much Resounding Sea"(1884), "Trojes Mines"(1883), "View of Venice"(1888), "The Tree Tetons"(1895), "Golden Gateway to the Yellowstone"(1893), "An Arizona Sunset Near the Grand Canyon"(1898), "Cliff Dwellers"(1899), "Shoshone Falls on the Snake River"(1900), "A Miracle of Nature"(1913).
