Born in Bolton in 1837, the artist’s family emigrated from England to America in 1844. Around 1856 Moran became a pupil of James Hamilton (1819–1878), a specialist in marine painting. The artist eventually found his forte to be landscape, rather than seascape, but he was strongly influenced by his tutor's insistence on the close study of nature. Moran became the leading landscape painter in America in the last quarter of the nineteenth century and is still justly famous in the USA.
