Respected for the animal and landscape paintings produced during his lifetime, Edwin Moore (1858-1925) experienced a fleeting recognition that lasted merely fifteen years, from about 1880-1895. By the time of his death, Moore’s artistic reputation was eclipsed by that of his father, landscape artist Nelson Augustus Moore. Restoration of his legacy has been the work of the Moore Picture Trust and private collectors who have generously loaned paintings, watercolors and family memorabilia to this exhibition. It also presents art of each of five generations of this family of artists that began two generations before Edwin and continues to this day.
