Claude Thomas Stanfield Moore, 1 June 1853 - 2 April 1901, has become the best known member of the Moores' family of artists. They were from Nottingham, United Kingdom and flourished from 1876 to his premature death in 1901, he was initially a British landscape artist who became better known for his maritime scenes and views over the Thames. By 1891, Claude T. S. Moore had declared himself a Marine Artist. His works are predominantly river scenes or coastal scenes with vessels drawn in intimate detail, always with dramatic lighting effects. Claude had a studio in Nottingham but worked mainly in London from 1882 until his death in 1901. He painted many London scenes, some of the most prominent being his views of the Thames, its wharves, ships; and his views of The Houses of Parliament and Westminster, from the river. I considered this particular painting very special, since it was referencing literature as well as being a superb example of his talent. The sunset is exquisitely and dramatically depicted. This is another of my personal collection that has hung on my gallery wall for many years. (Yes, I have very eclectic taste. On the opposite wall is a Miro, and in the hall a Tobiasse. I have always believed that one should buy what appeals and gives pleasure even though quite diverse.)
