Thomas Moran

1837 - 1926


Long celebrated as the premier painter of Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon, Thomas Moran produced a remarkably varied body of work during a career that spanned more than sixty years. Extraordinarily adept at recognizing the “visual potential of newly discovered lands in the Far West,” Moran offered Americans and Europeans their first look at several spectacular sites later preserved as national parks.
