Wonderful painting by the well known American artist of the turn of 20th century, Percy Moran.
Edward Percy Moran, who preferred to be known as Percy Moran, was born in Philadelphia in 1862. His father, Edward Moran, was a well known marine painter who emigrated to the United States with three brothers, also artists. Thomas Moran is known for his Rocky Mountain pictures, Peter was a painter, etcher, and illustrator, and John was a painter. Percy Moran continued in the family tradition by excelling as a genre and landscape painter and as an etcher. He was equally adept in oil and watercolor. Although he attended public school in Philadelphia, Moran spent most of his youth studying at his father's studio in New York City. In 1894, father and son traveled to Paris, where the young Moran attended and graduated from military school and then studied art for a year. Returning home, he continued his art studies at the National Academy of Design in New York City and then at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts under S.J. Ferris. This was followed by four years of study in Paris and London. Returning to New York City, Moran opened a studio and soon attracted notice with his watercolor sketches. His earliest work consists of scenes of children and peasant life, and portraits of pretty women. Later, he turned to the subject for which he is best remembered: the customs and homelife of colonial America. These quiet paintings, telling stories of love or of domestic incidents, are distinguished by great attention to detail. Many were reproduced in colored etchings, photogravures and mezzotint, and were published in books and magazines. Percy Moran died in New York City in 1935.
