N.A. Moore 1824-1902
Nelson Augustus Moore was born in Kensington Connecticut August 2, 1824. A leading landscape and portrait painter in his day, Moore studied his craft in New York City under the tutelage of Daniel Huntington and Thomas Cummings.
N.A. Moore spent much of his career in New England painting landscapes there while also keeping a studio in New York City. Many summers, every one between 1863 and 1888, were passed in Lake George, New York. There, Moore sold his paintings and received commissions from patrons for new works. The last five years of Moore's life were dedicated to painting at Lake Mohonk where scenes such as this one, a recent addition to our collection, were produced.
